String functions are used to manipulate strings. A string can defined as set of alphanumeric characters.

Some of the strings manipulating functions are as follows:

  • LEFT$ Function: It is a string function that returns specific number of characters from left side to supplied string and returns the value.
  • RIGHT$ Function: It is a string function that returns specific number of characters from right side to supplied string and returns the value.
  • MID$ Function: IT returns the specified number of characters from the specified location of a string.
  • UCASE$ Function: It returns a string expression with all letters in uppercase.
  • LCASE$ Function: It returns a string expression with all letters in lowercase.
  • CHR$ Function: IT retrieves the single characters and returns a character of the corresponding ASCII code in decimal.
  • STR$ Function: It converts a numeric expression into its string data returns the string value.
  • LTRIM$ Function: It removes trailing blank spaces from the left side of the string expression.
  • SPACE$ Function: It returns a number of spaces.
  • INSTR Function: It returns the position of first occurrence of a string in another string.
  • STRING$ Function: It is used with a PRINT statement that displays a particular character a specified number of times.
  • INKEY$ Function: It reads a character from the keyboard and returns the character.
  • INPUT$ Function: It returns a string of characters read from the specified file.
  • DATE$ Function: It returns the current system date of computer in string format in the form of MM/DD/YYYY.
  • TIME$ Function: It returns the current system time of computer in string format in the form of HH:MM:SS.

  • String functions are used to manipulate strings.
  • LEFT$ Function returns specific number of characters from left side to supplied string and returns the value.
  • RIGHT$ Function returns specific number of characters from right side to supplied string and returns the value.
  • MID$ Function returns the specified number of characters from the specified location of a string.

NEXT I
IF A$ = B$ THEN
A$ = "It is palindrome"
ELSE
A$="It is not palindrome"
END IF
END FUNCTION
