Write Command

You use Write to display information. To display simple text, enclose it in double quotes: "Hello World!". You can use Write to write more than one thing at a time, by separating items in the list with commas. The special formatting controls (!, ?, and #) allow you to specify new lines, specify column position, and clear the screen, respectively. You can also evaluate expressions (covered soon).
