I am just starting to learn delphi and I would like to know if there is a way to interrupt the normal execution of an application and run and external program (DOS or Windows applications) and then, when it is terminated to come back and continue the normal process, just like the old EXEC() procedure normally founded in the Turbo Pascal package.

This isn’t a place to discuss Delphi programming.
You must’ve confused Chief Delphi (which takes it’s
name from Delphi Automotive) and the Delphi
programming language made by Borland (or Inprise or
whatever they call themselves these days).
