9 Output Operations

Restrictions on the Use of ASCII Control Characters

NOTE: This function is only available on HP-UX platforms.

You can use DISPLAY FUNCTIONS to store non-printing ASCII control characters; however, be careful when outputting these control characters to a screen or printer, while in DISPLAY FUNCTIONS mode.

If you turn on DISPLAY FUNCTIONS and then press RETURN, the carriage-return/line-feed character is displayed on the screen and not executed. For example:

10 DISP "C/r L/f" ! Display carriage-return/line-feed
You can list this line to your terminal; however, the display will show the following:

10 DISP "~~"
ASCII control characters are displayed as a tilde (~), if you list your program.
