BRun is a very simple program which will start any other
CLI program in a totally separate CLI.
BRun works a bit like Run with input/output redirected to
NIL:. Now you may say, why not just do this with a macro:

    Alias BRun Run >NIL: <NIL: [] >NIL: <NIL:

This is what I tried for a while, but unfortunately it
doesn't always work (I can't actually remember what made it
fail, but believe me there was a problem!)

Also, redirecting Run's output to NIL: means that you won't
see any error messages from Run itself, and though it re-
directs standard output it can't stop other programs from
opening '*' and writing to your console window anyway.

BRun simply creates a new and totally separate CLI to run
the one command you give it. It does not generate any output
unless there is an error in creating the new CLI.

CDBRun is also quite simple and will start any other CLI
program in a totally separate CLI with a different current
directory. This is intended for all those programs which
require certain configuration or support files to be in the
current directory when they start. With this command you
don't actually need to change the current directory of the
CLI you are typing into.
