I've just done a test - renamed another pure command "Resident" and placed it in the C directory, to see if it over-rides the internal command.

It still ran the internal command first, so there's my answer. I thought it would search the ROM/internal list first, then the specified path (RAM:, C: etc), but just wanted to check.

Resident commands stop multiple copies being held in RAM when they are in use, so I'm assuming they again would be executed before any path search is initiated to eliminate disk access and save memory load.

Thanks for the response Zetro.
