i dont think so...use an array or a variable for each line of text
there might be a way to put an amount of characters from the variable to the string

put (length(word)-10)

that might give you everything but the last characters(MIGHT)
im not positive on that

% \n is the newline character

hmm! I thought \n was only used in the 'C' language, lol! tx, Ill probably end up using that if I go back from graphical programming.

well turing compiles into C then does work there... but why use that when u have skip?

cuz skip and \n are the exact same thing.

well, skip has other uses, like when your reading from a file


var stream:int
var line:string

assert stream>0

get:stream,skip   %skip all whitespace in the document
exit when eof(stream)
end loop

not really, when reading from a txt file, unless you did this:

get: filein, word :*

then it would get all the stuff up to any white spaces, and stop there, and I am pretty sure instead of using skip, you can just use '\n' instead.
