5.3 Creating Strings

The easiest way to create a string is, as illustrated in the introduction, to enclose a text in double-quotes or single-quotes. It is however possible to create a string without actually writing a text. The function blanks creates a string of a given length consisting only of blank characters (ASCII code 32).

Function File: blanks (n)

Return a string of n blanks, for example:

 
blanks(10);
whos ans;
     ⇒
      Attr Name        Size                     Bytes  Class
      ==== ====        ====                     =====  ===== 
           ans         1x10                        10  char
