Remark: This article describes the BASIC function STR$ in BASIC V2 at the Commodore 64.

Typ: String Function 
General Programming-Syntax: STR$(<numerical>)

STR$ is used to converting numerical values or variables into a string. When the number is positive or 0, the first char is a space. When it is a negative number, the first char is a minus (-).

If you call this on the wrong type of variable, like a string, the BASIC-error ?TYPE MISMATCH ERROR in line will be returned.

Like any numeric function, STR$ works if the expression evaluates to a value +/- 1e+38 or floating numbers with maximal 9 decimal places inside the range +/- 1e+28. If the resulting value is outside these bounds, the BASIC-error ?OVERFLOW ERROR IN line will be returned.

If the numerical argument is missing, the BASIC-error ?SYNTAX ERROR IN line is viewed.

Examples[edit]

PRINT STR$(1E11) (On screen: 1E+11)
PRINT STR$(0) (On screen: 0)
PRINT STR$(-1000) (On screen:-1000)
