Variables are values which can be manipulated. They are referenced using names composed of letters, numbers, and character "_". These reference names cannot contain most other symbols because such symbols are part of the ARMbasic programming language. They also cannot contain spaces.
32-bit signed whole-number data type. Can hold values from -2147483648 to 2147483647.
Single variables can hold positive and negative
numbers 0.0, 1.0000E-39 to 1.0000E+38. Within this range there are 7
significant digits. Outside this range numbers will print as
NaN -- not a number or Inf for infinity .
Variables are declared automatically on first use. A DIM statement is not required, but can be used. Once a INTEWGER variable is declared using a DIM, then all following variables must be declared that way .
Variable names must start with a letter or _ character, but then can contain letters, numbers or the _ character. The name must also contain at least one letter. Only the first 32 characters of a variable name are used, beyond that they are truncated. Also names are not case sensitive.
