Command

EVAL_TEXT <string variable>


Evaluate any variables stored in a text variable and save the resulting text back to the variable.

You need to use this command if you are building up a string variable using the same variable with different values.

Parameters

<string variable>
a string variable, for example a$

Example

i = 1
a$ = "i = %i"
i = 2
a$ = a$ + " and now i = %i"
Message a$ ( this will display the text "i = 2 and now i = 2"

i = 1
a$ = "i = %i"
EVAL_TEXT a$
i = 2
a$ = a$ + " and now i = %i"
Message a$ ( this will display the text "i = 1 and now i = 2"
