12 File Handling Commands

In many applications, it is desirable to load previously prepared REDUCE files into the system, or to write output on other files. REDUCE offers four commands for this purpose, namely, IN, OUT, SHUT, LOAD, and LOAD_PACKAGE. The first three operators are described here; LOAD and LOAD_PACKAGE are discussed in Section 19.2.

 12.1 IN Command
 12.2 OUT Command
 12.3 SHUT Command
