text Optional — Any MVBasic expression that resolves to a quoted string or a numeric. You can specify a single expression or a series of expressions separated by either commas (,) or colons (:). A comma inserts a tab spacing between the two strings. A colon concatenates the two strings. If text is omitted, a blank line is returned.
format Optional — A code specifying how to handle text, specified as a quoted string. This format is applied to the text that immediately precedes it. Whitespace characters may be inserted between text and format.


DISPLAY is identical in function to the CRT statement. Please refer to the CRT statement for further information.
