The SADD function returns the address of a STRING variable as an offset from the current data segment.



Syntax: SADD(stringvariable)


  • The argument may be a simple string variable or a single element of a string array. You may not use fixed-length strings.
  • Use this function carefully because strings can move in the BASIC string space storage area at any time.
