My BASIC Quick Reference Guide

Abbreviation: L <SHIFT+E>

TYPE: Statement
FORMAT: [LET] <variable> = <expression>

Action: The LET statement can be used to assign a value to a variable. But the word LET is optional and therefore most advanced programmers leave LET out because it's always understood and wastes valuable memory.

The equal sign (=) alone is sufficient when assigning the value of an expression to a variable name.

EXAMPLES of LET Statement:

10 LET D= 12 (This is the same as D = 12)
20 LET E$ = "ABC"
30 F$ = "WORDS"
40 SUM$= E$ + F$ (SUM$ would equal ABCWORDS)
