NAME

print - print value

SYNOPSIS

#include <basic/string.h>
#include <basic/type.h>
#include <basic/generic.h>

print(type, generic)
int type;
union generic generic;

DESCRIPTION

Print formats the value given by type, generic (see generic(inc)) and outputs it to the current file (see initio(io)).  It is legal to write sequentially to a random file provided the write is entirely within the buffer.  Strings are written without modification.  Numeric values are preceded by a blank if non-negative, formatted by numcvt (see numcvt(io)), and written followed by a blank. 

This function implements the value printing capability of the LPRINT, PRINT and PRINT # statements. 

SEE ALSO

generic(inc), initio(io), numcvt(io)
lprint(stmt), print(stmt), print #(stmt)

DIAGNOSTICS

Error 5 (Illegal function call) is generated if the file is open for input only.
