How do I instruct Mathematica to evaluate statements in a strict order?
Though the semicolon, ; , seems to be the thing to use, I am pretty sure there is at least some kind of preprocessing carried out on the whole statement before each piece is evaluated. Is this true?

I have a complicated function which opens and closes files and uses outside C code (without MathLink, simply with the Run[] command) and I need this function to be used repeatedly, albeit in the strict order of evaluation that I specify.
