16.3.73 source

Command: source file

Read file as a configuration file, as if its contents had been incorporated directly into the sourcing file. Unlike configfile (see configfile), this executes the contents of file without changing context: any environment variable changes made by the commands in file will be preserved after source returns, and the menu will not be shown immediately.
