This function will generate a string of the given length and return it. The new string will consist of a repeated series of short$ which may be one or two characters long. The length (as with any string) ranges from 0 to 32767.
returns “” (the empty string).
A bug in the THOR XVI (v6.40) meant that the return stack could be destroyed when appending the result to an even length string.
A program will run more quickly (although it is more difficult to type in) if you declare the string explicitly rather than using FILL$.
The maximum length of string that can be produced with FILL$ depends on the ROM version - see the Compatibility Appendix.
