How to invoke a nested script (.SCR) in AutoCAD?

A - answer Calling a script with the SCRIPT command will terminate execution of the original (parent) script file, so you cannot nest AutoCAD scripts by default.

But AutoCAD - since version 2016 - offers another command - SCRIPTCALL) - which works similar to SCRIPT, but allows script nesting. After the nested (called, invoked) script is completed, AutoCAD returns to the execution of the former (calling, master) script, immediately after the SCRIPTCALL command.
