I create a program i javascript - not in  web page, but for running from script .js file. The problem is - i have some functions in another .js file, and I want to call them from my script ..So, I need any way, how to import, on include, or show to way to another file, where these  functions are defined.


Something like this :
file1.js :
function MyFun()
{.........}

file2.js :
MyFun() // I' like to call MyFun

But I can't find any command in javascript to do it....

Thanks for any reply...

What do you mean "Not in a web page"?

A programming environment which supports JavaScript files (eg. SVG, HTML) should support calling functions between the JavaScript files if you include them together.

For example, in Test.svg:
<script xlink:href="script/Library.js" language="JavaScript"/>
<script xlink:href="script/Constants.js" language="JavaScript"/>

Another example, in Test.html:
<script src="script/Library.js" type=text/javascript></script>
<script src="script/Constants.js" type=text/javascript></script>

Based on the examples above, a function in Library.js can call any function in Constants.js and a function in Constants.js can call any function in Library.js.

unfortunately they are being run as .js files outside of the web :)

If you put them in an HTA you could run them with the security of a standalone .js
