LPRINT

Format

LPRINT printobject [;]

Description

This statement is used to send the contents of printobject to an attached printer. "printobject" can be any valid ASIC datatype: integer, string, or decimal number. Optionally, a ";" can be included with this statement to suppress a carriage return/line feed which ASIC normally also sends to the printer following each LPRINT. This can be used to string several printobjects together on a single print line.

Example

A=12345
LPRINT "The value of A is: ";
LPRINT A
After execution of these statements the printer would print:
    The value of A is: 12345

Comments

Note that if the printer is not "online" that DOS will issue a message to "Abort, Retry, or Ignore". This could overwrite a portion of the program display, unless not planned for.
Note also, that some printers do not begin printing until they receive a carriage return/line feed sequence.
