RIGHT$ R{Shift+I} C9 1.0 Function

  Syntax  
RIGHT$ source , length )
 
Parameters Type Legal Value(s) Default Value Note(s)
source String
any (0 to 255 chars)
length Unsigned Byte 0 to 255     
 
Returns Type Value(s) Note(s)
subString String
0 to length characters
 
  Purpose  
Return the the right-most character(s) from a source string.
 
  Remarks  
RIGHT$ is one of the three string-splicing functions provided by BASIC (these complement string concatenation with the + operator).  RIGHT$ returns a subString with (up to) length characters from the ending (right side) of the source string.
 
If length specifies more characters than exist in source, the entire source is returned and there is no error.  If length is omitted or not a valid expression, SYNTAX ERROR occurs.  If length is not numeric, TYPE MISMATCH ERROR occurs.  If length is not a legal value (see above) an ILLEGAL QUANTITY ERROR happens.
 
If source is omitted or not a valid expression, SYNTAX ERROR occurs.  If source is not a string, TYPE MISMATCH ERROR occurs; you can use STR$ to convert a number into a string.
 
Examples:
PRINT RIGHT$(100.8, 2)

?TYPE MISMATCH ERROR 
READY.
PRINT RIGHT$("100.8", 2)
.8
 
READY.
PRINT RIGHT$("HELLO", 2)
LO

READY.
PRINT RIGHT$("CBM", 16)
CBM

READY.
