In Petit Computer BASIC, there is no keyword for assignment. The command to assign a value to a variable has the form:
variablename = expression
expression gets evaluated, and the resulting value is assigned to the variable
variablename. (This is in contrast to many variants of BASIC, where the same command would look like
LET variablename = expression.)
Note that the single
= sign always means assignment in Petit Computer BASIC. To test whether two expressions are equal to each other, use the relational operator ==.
