Example[edit | edit source]
The following example reads a series of words from DATA statements, until the word "quit" is encountered, listing each word with the address in BASIC program memory where that word is stored:
10 read i$ 20 print i$;" is stored at"; 30 print peek(65)+256*peek(66) 40 if i$<>"quit" then goto 10 50 data this,example,comes 60 data from,the,c64-Wiki 70 data quit run this is stored at 2140 example is stored at 2148 comes is stored at 2154 from is stored at 2165 the is stored at 2169 c64-wiki is stored at 2178 quit is stored at 2189 ready.
Note that the addresses refer to the point in the BASIC program text where the words are stored as part of the DATA statements, not to the i$ variable in which the words are temporarily stored.
