      Alan,

      LB doesn't have a precise CHAIN command, but it does allow up to 70
      megabytes of program code and data space -- far larger than old GW BASIC
      could ever command.

      It's very likely that you could rewrite your program with minimal effort
      to use the old modules as subroutines off a main calling program, and
      just use a CALL or GOSUB statement to invoke the different subprograms.
