My BASIC Quick Reference Guide

NEW
Abbreviation:

TYPE: Command
FORMAT: NEW

Action: The NEW command is used to delete the program currently in memory and clear all variables. Before typing in a new program, NEW should be used in direct mode to clear memory. NEW can also be used in a program, but you should be aware of the fact that it will erase everything that has gone before and is still in the computer's memory. This can be particularly troublesome when you're trying to debug your program.

BE CAREFUL: Not clearing out an old program before typing a new one can result in a confusing mix of the two programs.

EXAMPLES of NEW Command:

NEW (Clears the program and all variables)
10 NEW (Performs a NEW operation and STOPs the program.)
