READ var[, var …]

Assigns values in DATA items to specified variables.

  • var - Any variable.

Unless a RESTORE command is executed, SmallBASIC moves to the next DATA item with each READ assignment. If SmallBASIC runs out of DATA items to READ, an run-time error occurs.

FOR c=1 TO 6
    READ x
    PRINT x
DATA "a,b,c", 2
DATA 3, 4
DATA "fifth", 6
