Can an .EXE (powerbasic console compiler) be run from a trigger?

I am a IT dinosaur, 50+ years in computing, 45+ years programming in multiple old school languages.

I do not know Visual Basic or C. For many years I've been using PowerBasic Console Compiler, since before Windows.

Is it possible to use a PowerBasic Console Compiler program (they are self contained and compact in size) as a macro?

I would like to write a fairly complicated macro/exe to edit/clean-up text in certain circumstances.

I am hopeful you can help.
