repeatmake copies of string


Syntax   repeat ( s : string, i : int ) : string

Description   The repeat function returns i copies of string s catenated together. For example, repeat ("X", 4) is XXXX.

Example   This program outputs HoHoHo.

        var word : string := "Ho"
        put repeat ( word, 3 )
