In general, I would recommend looking for ways to turn
often-used bits of code into functions that take generic
arguments.  Those functions can then be loaded at startup by
your $HOME/.isisrc file or perhaps loaded on-demand through the
"autoload" feature.

I think the ".source" command does what you want:


    read slang commands from a file

    .source filename

    This function is very similar to the .load shortcut except that
    lines from the file are interpreted as though they had been
    typed at the command line -- all command shortcuts are
    available and variables need not be declared before use.

    .load, evalfile
