String

SPC (n)

Returns a string of n spaces.

These are excellent for maintaining a fixed length string or buffer or record or refining screen output by inserting a specified amount of spaces in a string. This works well with LEFT and RIGHT keywords for Left Center or Right aligning text.


'here are right aligned numbers in 10 character length string between two single quote marks
while 1
  myNumber=(rnd*10^(rnd*4)\\1)\\1
  ? "'";RIGHT(SPC(10)+STR(myNumber),10);"'";SPC(3)+"press a key or click for next..."
  pause
wend

I think SPACE and SPC are both the same, see also SPACE.
