Load Workspace )LOAD {ws}

This command causes the named stored workspace to be loaded.  The current active workspace is lost.

See Workspaces for the rules for specifying a workspace name.

If ws is a full or relative pathname, only the specified directory is examined.  If not, the APL workspace path (WSPATH) is traversed in search of the named workspace.  A stored workspace is one which has previously been saved with the system command )SAVE or the system function ⎕SAVE.  Under Windows, if ws is omitted, the File Open dialog box is displayed.

If the workspace name is not valid or does not exist or if access to the workspace is not authorised, the system reports ws not found.  If the workspace name identifies a file or directory that is not a workspace, the system reports wsname is not a ws.  If successfully loaded, the system reports workspace name saved, followed by the date and time when the workspace was last saved.  If the workspace is too large to be loaded into the APL session, the system reports ws too large.  After loading the workspace, the current namespace is set to # and the latent expression (⎕LX) is executed unless APL was invoked with the -x option. If the workspace was saved with a suspension, typing the expression →1+⎕lc will resume execution and switch back into the namespace associated with the suspended function.

If the workspace contains any GUI objects whose Visible property is 1, these objects will be displayed.  If the workspace contains a non-empty ⎕SM but does not contain an SM GUI object, the form defined by ⎕SM will be displayed in a window on the screen.

Holding the Ctrl key down while entering a )LOAD command or selecting a workspace from the session file menu causes the incoming latent expression to be traced.

Holding the Shift key down while selecting a workspace from the session file menu will prevent execution of the latent expression.
