$INCLUDE is a metacommand that is used to insert a source file into your program which is then executed at the point of the insertion.
- The source file MUST have REM or apostrophies around the name.
- The source file included can contain any BASIC statement except SUB or GOTO
- QB 4.5 can use SUB calls in BI files such as QB.BI.
- QB64 users can use all statements in their include files.
- The $INCLUDE metacommand should be the last statement on a line since execution progresses after the line of the $INCLUDE metacommand.
- $INCLUDE is often used to DECLARE functions and subs used in a external library.
- There must always be a REM or ' comment before the $INCLUDE metacommand.
Example: '$INCLUDE: 'QB.BI'
