AUTONUM

This command automatically generates sequential program line numbers.
Format
AUTONUM <A>,<B>
Parameters
A
= the number used to start the auto-numbering sequence
B
= the automatic increment between the new line numbers
Example
This example shows specifying the starting line number in the increment between new line number. Type the following at the prompt:
AUTONUM 10,5 SUB START PRINT "HELLO WORLD" GOTO START LIST
Will produce:
AUTONUM 10,5 10 SUB START 15 PRINT "HELLO WORLD" 20 GOTO START
The three lines are automatically started with the
AUTONUM
parameters; in this case, the first line starts with 10 and each subsequent line increments by 5.
Comments
This feature is disabled by overwriting the current line number and entering the desired interactive mode commands, or leaving the line blank.
Use of the
SUB
command allows for
GOTO
and
GOSUB
statements that do not require line numbers in your program.
This is an interactive command that takes effect as soon as it is received by the printer.
