NAME ^

var_display - Display the strings stored in an Applesoft BASIC VAR file

SYNOPSIS ^

var_display VAR-FILE

DESCRIPTION ^

var_display lists the contents of an Applesoft BASIC VAR file. Currently, it can only display string variables and string arrays. The strings are formatted ready to drop into a C or Perl program, with Control-M (the Apple's end-of-line character) displayed as \n, backslashes and quotation marks quoted (\\ and \"), and control characters in the range \x00 to \x1F displayed in hexadecimal notation.

REQUIREMENTS ^

var_display is a stand-alone utility.

BUGS ^

var_display only displays string variables and one-dimensional string arrays. It wouldn't be hard to add support for integer and floating-point variables or multi-dimensional arrays, but I don't need it. If you do, send email!
