A command is an action you can perform in PICO-8 by typing it at the command prompt. Commands are used to load and save cartridges, manage files, and launch the Splore cartridge explorer.

Executing commands Edit

Unlike functions, you do not use parentheses after the command name. For commands that take arguments, you type each argument after the command separated by spaces. String arguments such as filenames are not surrounded by quote marks.

All commands can be called by source code as functions, using parentheses around the argument list, quotes around string arguments, and commas between arguments. Most commands don't do anything useful when called from code.
