NewDeal Hot Tip 1534General Use
LOADER.EXE, as its name implies, loads the NewDeal system software into memory and initiates the kernel (core routines). When invoked without any parameters (i.e. LOADER), NewDeal will run normally. When invoked with one of the parameters outlined below (e.g. "loader/nomem"), the behavior of NewDeal is altered only for that session. The change is not permanent; it does not affect the next time you run LOADER.EXE. Each parameter must be preceded by a forward slash character ('/') and must be in lower-case.
To use this parameter, you must first add lines like these to your GEOS.INI file:
[paths]Then create a file named WRITE.INI, which contains these lines:
iniwrite = write.ini
inidraw = draw.ini
[ui]Make a file like this for each program you want to directly launch when starting NewDeal. Then start NewDeal with the parameter /Pxxx where xxx is 'write' or 'draw' or whatever you have written as keyword in the GEOS.INI, but without the leading 'ini'.
Example: LOADER /Pwrite
