On Poll: I thought everyone that knows their Blitz knew about the Write command. Never found a use for it myself, and print was only used for test and debugging reasons.

I knew it was there, many years ago.. I've used it in a few of my earliest games, but .. It's long since been forgotten about!

The story sofar:

While converting the TinyBasic code, i was searching for the good old Print ".."; replacement, which lets you do exactly, what write command does.

I remember that i saw a print replacement somewhere (years ago) and found it on this page.

later while playtesting the function, i saw following line in the comments
"Custom Print Library V3: Elaborate Locate/Write/Print replacement."

And there was it, where i thought, wait, what is Write ? Blitz has it ?

A Fast look in the help file revealed that it is exactly what i needed. ^^

I'm sure there's tons of commands I've forgotten that will be super mega hyper useful!
Forgotten skills..
