Revision as of 01:17, 18 October 2010 by (Created page with 'The ''semicolon'' is used in a PRINT statement to stop the cursor immediately following the printed value so that another value can be appended. ''Usage:'' PRINT "Value ="…')
The semicolon is used in a PRINT statement to stop the cursor immediately following the printed value so that another value can be appended.
Usage: PRINT "Value ="; value%
- 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!
