GET_WORD

Syntax word = GET_WORD(#channel)
Location DJToolkit 1.16

The next two bytes are read from the appropriate file and returned as an integer value. This is equivalent to CODE(INKEY$(#channel)) * 256 + CODE(INKEY$(#channel)). See the caution above for GET_BYTE as it applies here as well. Any negative numbers returned will always be an error code.

EXAMPLE

w = GET_WORD(#3)
