|PRINT#||$98||1.0||Command and Statement|
Where file_num is the file number assigned to an open file.
Print a numeric or string value to a logical file.
The keyword PRINT# may not be abbreviated with ”?#”. The correct abbreviation is P shift-R “pR”.
value may be a literal, variable, or an expression of either numeric or string type.
PRINT# 8, 1.5 :REM numeric literal PRINT# 8, X :REM numeric variable PRINT# 8, 2*X :REM numeric expression PRINT# 8, LEFT$(N$,12) :REM string expression PRINT# 8, N$ :REM string variable PRINT# 8, "HELLO" :REM string literal PRINT# 8, SPC(8); "HELLO" :REM output 8 spaces before string
Multiple values may be sent to the logical file without any seperation between them (use semicolons) or by “spacing” between them (use commas). Multiple values may also be seperated with the SPC() and TAB() functions. After sending them to the file, BASIC will normally also send a final carriage return but this may be suppressed by ending the statment with a semicolon. See PRINT for details.
When two values are sperated with a comma, BASIC will print 12 spaces between the two values in the output file.
If nothing follows file_num, then BASIC will just send a carriage return (character $0D = CHR$(13)).
Whenever BASIC sends a carriage return, it will also send a line feed (character $0A = CHR$(10)) immediately after it if file_num is 128 or greater.
