12 Multiple Task Programming

Eloqence provides the ability to run multiple programs concurrently from the same terminal. This ability is referred to as "multi-tasking." Multi-tasking is controlled by five statements--REQUEST #, ATTACH #, DETACH, ATTACH, and RELEASE #. This chapter describes multi-tasking as well as how to control the shared use of peripherals, files, and databases.

NOTE: This feature is not available on the Windows NT and Linux platform.
