Action: The TAB function moves the cursor to a relative SPC move position on the screen given by the <numeric> argument, starting with the left-most position of the current line. The value of the argument can range from 0 to 255. The TAB function should only be used with the PRINT statement, since it has no effect if used with PRINT# to a logical file.EXAMPLE of TAB Function:
100 PRINT"NAME" TAB(25) "AMOUNT": PRINT 110 INPUT#1, NAM$, AMT$ 120 PRINT NAM$ TAB(25) AMT$ NAME AMOUNT G.T. JONES 25.
Action: Returns the tangent of the value of the <numeric> expression in radians. If the TAN function overflows, the BASIC error message ?DIVISION BY ZERO is displayed.
EXAMPLE of TAN Function:
10 XX=.785398163: YY=TAN(XX):PRINT YY 1
