     SBasic User's Manual     SBasic Version 2.7              Page 5
     Printed:  December 5, 1999

     You execute SB by entering the command:

         sbasic  infile 

     where 'infile' contains the path to the source file you wish to
     compile.  SB writes its output, the assembly language source for the
     target, to the standard output, which is normally the screen.

     You can redirect the output file to another file by entering the

         sbasic  infile    >outfile

     where 'outfile' is the path to an output file to hold the created
     source lines.

     If SB did not detect any errors in your source file, its output file
     should assemble correctly with the appropriate target assembler.  If
     SB detected errors, it inserts error notices in the output file.
     These are almost guaranteed to generate numerous errors if the
     resulting output file is assembled.

     SBasic supports several command-line options, used to control the
     addresses of key elements in the final program.  These options will be
     explained in detail below.

     Upon completion, SB returns an errorlevel that can be used to
     determine success or failure of the compilation.  If SB successfully
     compiled the source program, it returns an errorlevel of 0.  If SB
     detected one or more errors during compilation, it returns an
     errorlevel of 1.
