The LAUNCH function is used to run REBOL scripts as a separate process. When LAUNCH is called, a new process is created and passed the script file name or URL to be processed. The process is created as a subprocess of the main REBOL process.

Launch has certain restrictions depending on the REBOL system used. Also, within Unix/Linux systems, launch will use the same shell standard files as the main REBOL process, and output will be merged.
