RESTORE

Format

RESTORE

Description

This statement allows you to READ data from DATA statements after you have already READ it once.

Example

DATA 0

READ A
RESTORE
READ B
In this example, "READ A" causes variable "A" to be set to 0. Now, the DATA statement is "used up". There is no more data left on it to be read. The RESTORE resets the DATA so that the next statement "READ B" will result in "B" being set to 0. If the RESTORE was not done, the contents of B would be undefined.
