The SPC function is used in PRINT and LPRINT statements to print or output a number of space characters.


Syntax

SPC(count%)


Description

  • When used in a PRINT statement,
    • count% is the number of space characters to print, overwriting existing characters.
    • If count% is greater than the number of columns left in the current row, remaining space characters are printed on the next row.
  • When used in a PRINT # statement,
    • count% is the number of space characters to output.
    • If count% is less than or equal to zero, the function has no effect.


Examples

PRINT "123456789" PRINT "abc" ; SPC(3) ; "123"

123456789 abc 123
