  • Numerical values printed will include a space before and after each value printed. * Use the WRITE statement to print values with only commas between the values.
  • Use a semicolon after text that will be printed on the last two text rows of a screen mode to prevent screen rolling.
  • INPUT statements can use the semicolon before the text to prevent screen rolling. INPUT ; "text or question"; variable.
  • A semicolon after the text will create a question mark and space after the INPUT text question. Use a comma for statements.
  • NOTE: Semicolons can NOT be used to combine string variables in a string variable definition!
  • Use the + concatenation operator to combine string variable definition values only!
