%CSIDL_* meta statements info: https://msdn.microsoft.com/it-it/library/windows/desktop/bb762494(v=vs.85).aspx

 

Those meta statements will be resolved using SHGetFolderLocation function

 

Meta variables are place holders that will be replaced with relevant values at script run-time.

 

More #INCLUDEDIR statement can be present in a script file.

 

When included files specified by #INCLUDE have no path at all, the following finding sequence will used:

1.current script path
2.\thinBasic\Inc\ path
3.if still not found, the paths specified by #INCLUDEDIR in the sequence they have been specified in the script

 

Restrictions

 

This directive is a pre parsing directive. It means all #INCLUDEDIR statements will be solved before starting script execution.
