16.1 .load

The .load command loads a file containing Poke code and compiles and executes it. These files usually have the extension .pk.

If a relative path is provided, then prefix/share/poke is tried first as a base directory to find the specified file. If it is not found, then the current directory is tried next.

If the environment variable POKEDATADIR is defined, it replaces prefix/share/poke. This is mainly intended to test a poke program before it gets installed in its final location.

If an absolute path is provided, it is used as-is.
