Keywords Introduction

The following is a general description of the various commands available to the SuperBASIC programmer, as provided by Public Domain toolkits, QL Emulators and SuperBASIC itself.

We have indicated which of the commands are functions (and therefore must appear in a program in the form):

x = FUNCTION ( parameter )


IF FUNCTION ( parameter ) = value

and those which are procedures (also known as commands) which must therefore appear in a program in the form:

PROCEDURE parameter


Many toolkits insist that you initialise the toolkit before you can use the various keywords contained in those toolkits. Refer to Section 1.1 for details.
