The 2.0 Amiga operating system provides more flexible methods of
launching programs from an application.  The 2.0 dos.library contains
a new function, System(), which is more flexible and powerful than the
1.3 Execute() function.  Improvements to the con-handler, CON:, allow
programs to create ``auto con'' windows, which are console windows
that will only appear if input is requested from or output is sent to
that console.  The 2.0 con-handler also provides several other
enhancements, including Close gadgets for CON: windows and a feature
which allows a program to use an existing window as its CON: window.
