The PRINT statement sends data directly to the current output device, which will be either the terminal or the printer. It takes the general form: 

PRINT expression {, expression...} {:}

An expression can evaluate to any data type. The PRINT statement will convert the result to a string type for printing. Expressions separated by commas will be sent to the output device separated by a tab character.

The PRINT statement will append a newline sequence to the final expression unless it is terminated with a colon ":" character.


  • As the expression can be any valid expression, it may have output formatting applied to it.
  • If a PRINTER ON statement is currently active then output will be sent to the currently assigned printer form queue.

An example of use is as: 

PRINT @(8,20):"Como esta?":
