CALLGT - execute a TSS command, never to return.


call callgt(string [,name])


is a character constant or variable with the command line of the program being called. The end of the string is marked by a carriage return character or a backslash "\".
is a 4 character character value with the name of the subsystem to call. If "name" is omitted, the first 4 characters of "string" will be used.


CALLGT is used to transfer control to another TSS subsystem, passing it a command line. Unfortunately, it is not possible to pass a command line containing a "\" to the called program.

CALLGT does not wrapup the rest of the runtime library, so the user must close (or endfile) all open files before calling CALLGT.
