Fairly new to MapInfo both versions. I am a efficient user of ArcGIS, but my query being I was reading up on MapBasic but all the examples for these scripts are for running within MapInfo. Is there any way you can write script (stand alone) outside of MapInfo to make it do something?
I would like some suggestions on what other software can control MapInfo. I am used to writing python scripts outside of ESRI ArcGIS desktop and being able to run the mxds without even opening up the maps. So similarly I wanted to know what can be done for MapInfo?
