- file_number is a user-defined number (1 to 255) of an open file
- value is a literal, variable, or an expression of either numeric or string type
- count and column are a numberic literal, variable, or expression
Redirect screen text output to a logical file, and optionaly print one or more values.
Redirection lasts until an error occurs, or a device input/operation (such as PRINT#) is used. The optional value argument(s) are sent to the device, exactly like PRINT#, but redirection remains in effect afterwards.
OPEN 4,4 CMD 4, "MY PROGRAM LISTING" LIST PRINT#4 CLOSE 4
This example will LIST the BASIC program in memory on a printer (with a title line “MY PROGRAM LISTING”). The program listing (and the subsequent READY message) will be printed on paper and will not appear on screen. Failure to issue PRINT# before CLOSE will cause most printers to suppress the final line (they generally buffer data and do not actually print until a CR is received).
