TAB()
Abbreviation: T <SHIFT+A>

TYPE: String Function
FORMAT: TAB (<numeric>)

Action: The TAB function moves the cursor to a relative SPC move position on the screen given by the <numeric> argument, starting with the left-most position of the current line. The value of the argument can range from 0 to 255. The TAB function should only be used with the PRINT statement, since it has no effect if used with PRINT# to a logical file.

EXAMPLE of TAB Function:

100 PRINT"NAME" TAB(25) "AMOUNT": PRINT
110 INPUT#1, NAM$, AMT$
120 PRINT NAM$ TAB(25) AMT$

NAME-------------------------AMOUNT

G.T. JONES------------------------25. (- = space)
