axiinvokes the interpreter command line interpreter. Without
arguments, the interpreter is invoked interactively. With
one or several arguments, the first argument is taken as the
file to execute. The rest of the command line is the
arguments for the file being executed. With the help of the
file resolver, a file does not have to have the .alsor
.axcextensions. When using a librarian, an initial module
can be automatically loaded with the help of the moption. A
double system separator can be used to separate the
interpreter options with the program options. Normally, the
encoding mode is automatically detected from the running
session or from the system environment. However, the eoption
might be used to overwrite the default settings, especially
when an file is based on one of the ISO‐8859 character set.

The current version is the 2.8.1release.
