Part

Description

num

Value to be converted to string.

Details

Can be invoked implicitly, through the string_var= word_var expression (see example below). Compiler is smart enough to pre-calculate constant-only expressions involving implicit use of str function.

Examples

 

dim w as word

dim s as string

 

w=3400

s = str(w) 'explicit invocation.

s = w 'implicit invocation

s = 100 'will be calculated at compilation -- no actual str function invokation will be here
