DEFBYTE


Specifies a default data type for a range of variable names

Syntax:
Defbyte start_letter[-end_letter ][, ...]

Parameters:
start_letter
the first letter in the range
end_letter
the last letter in the range

Description:
Defbyte specifies that variables and arrays which aren't declared with a data type - or not declared at all - are implicitly declared of type Byte if the first letter of their names matches a certain letter or lies within an inclusive range of letters.

Examples:
This will make bNumber a Byte number since it's first letter starts with b:
'' Compile with -lang fblite or qb

#lang "fblite"

DefByte b
Dim bNumber
