  []   Optional parameters.
  {}   Required parameters.
  |   Separates a list of "either/or" options.
  ()   Notes or additional comments.
  (Item)+x.x   Denotes items that were added in version "x.x".
  (Item)*   Denotes items that are becoming obsolete (but still backward compatible).
  (Item)-x.x   Denotes items that were removed in version "x.x".

Items can be commands (in which case the version information applies to the entire command), or command options (in which case the version information applies only to that option within that command).

All information comes from a base of version 2.0, i.e. Any command or command option without version designation has existed since 2.0.

When listing the acceptable values for parameters with pre-defined values, the default value is listed first.

POSITION SYNTAX

(a,b,c) where

Line position and column position values may be fixed, or relative.

Examples:

       print &name (10,15,30)
Will be printed on line 10, column 15.

       print &address (+1,15,30)
Will be printed directly below the name.


ARRAY DOT SYNTAX

Array elements can be referenced and altered within an expression (in a LET, IF, or WHILE command) by using the special "dot" syntax in the form:

    array.field(element[,occurs])

Examples:

       if states.name(1) = 'Alabama'
          let states.abbrev(1) = 'AL'
          let $State_Bird    = states.things(2,1)
          let $State_Flower  = states.things(2,2)
          let chosen.bird(#curr) = states.things(2,1)
       end-if


DATA TYPES+4.0

DECIMAL
Numeric with a precision (total number of digits used to represent the number) from 1 to 38 (default 16). Valid decimal numbers are in the range -9.9999999999999999999999999999999999999E+4096 to +9.9999999999999999999999999999999999999E+4096
FLOAT
Double precision floating point numeric. Range and precision of these are machine dependent. Default type for numeric variables (this was the only numeric type in version 3.x and before).
INTEGER
Numeric integers with a range of -2,147,483,648 to +2,147,483,648.
DATE
Date in the range of January 1, 4713 BC to December 31, 9999 AD.
TEXT or CHAR
String. Length is limited by the memory of your computer.
If not defined with "declare-variable", any variable beginning with a "$" is a string variable.  Any variable beginning with a "#" is the "default-numeric" type from "declare-variable" (defaults to float).

The "let", "move", "get" and "put" commands will auto-convert between some data types.  They will auto-convert string <-> numeric, and string <-> date.  They will not convert date <-> numeric.


COMMAND REFERENCE

KEY:
Date+4.0 Text Numeric
$d Variable $t Variable #n Variable
&d Column &t Column &n Column
£d Literal £t Literal £n Literal
~d Variable or Literal ~t Variable or Literal ~n Variable or Literal
d Var, Lit, or Col  t Var, Lit, or Col  n Var, Lit, or Col 
 
v Any Variable value Any Variable, Literal, or Column
NOTES: In some cases, the only significant portion of a numeric is its truncated integer value. An "i" is used to designate these cases, this does not mean that an integer data type is required. Similarly, some values are returned as floating point and designated with an f, but they are not restricted to being stored into that data type.
"Round" parameter ranges depend on the data type. Float types rounded can be from 1 to 15, Decimal types can be from 1 to its precision.
