BASIC.EXE is able to have command-line parameters.
When /NI is specified , BASIC.EXE do not re-write BASIC.INI.
When /NR succeeded by a file name is specified, that file is opened without run.
When /OR succeeded by a file name is specified, that program is run.
When a file name is specified without /NR or /OR, BASIC.EXE terminates after the execution of that program.
When two option switches are needed, they must be written in order of /NI /NR (or /NI /OR).
When a file which contains a program with a PROGRAM statement is specified, the program parameters must be written separated by space characters, succeeding the file name.
(Note) Every parameter must be separated by space characters.
(Note) Omission of the extension of a program file name is not allowed.
