- SAVE"FILENAME.BA (hit enter) ... to create the runable version
- Exit BASIC
You may now run the program. But before you do, a good idea is to save the runnable version (.BA, or if the .ba version creates a .co version .CO) back to your DOS/Windows computer so you don't have to convert the program each time you want to use it.
