spc - insert spaces in a print statement
function may be used only with
statements in order to cause a specified number of spaces to be
sent to the output.
The argument may be any numeric expression in the
range 0 to 255.
Basmark QuickBASIC does not add a newline when
occurs at the end of a data list.
Instead, it executes as though the
function had a semicolon after it.
print "IGNORE" spc(10) "ALIEN" spc(10) "ORDERS"
IGNORE ALIEN ORDERS
If NumExpr is less than 0 or greater than 255, an "Illegal
function call" error occurs.
