The CHARS function accepts a dynamic array of numeric expressions as an argument and returns a dynamic array of corresponding ASCII characters. It takes the general form:


Where each element of DynArr must evaluate to a numeric argument in the range 0-255. If any of the dynamic array elements are non-numeric, a run-time error will occur. An example of use would be displaying an emoticon using:

0001     y = 58 : @AM : 45 : @AM : 41
0002     z = CHARS (y)
0003     FOR i = 1 TO 3
0004         CRT z<i>:
0005     NEXT i
