The '''SCREEN''' function returns the [[ASCII]] code of a text character or the color attribute at a set text location on the screen.


''Syntax:'' code% = SCREEN (row, column [, {0|1}])
* Row and column are the text coordinates of the SCREEN mode used.
* Colorflag omitted or with a value of 0 returns the ASCII code of a character at the position designated.
* When Colorflag is greater than 0, the function returns the color attribute used.
* Color values returned may not be correct in screen modes other than SCREEN 0.
''Example:'' Reading the [[ASCII]] code of a character, then the color used.
