The DISPLAY statement displays a message on the user's screen and optionally requests the user to enter a response to the message.

expression Is converted, where necessary, to a character string. This character string is displayed. It can contain mixed character data. If the expression has the GRAPHIC attribute, it is not converted.

REPLY (char-ref) Specifies a character reference that receives the user entered response. The response can contain CHARACTER, GRAPHIC, or mixed data.


The REPLY option suspends program execution until the user enters a response.
If GRAPHIC data is entered in the REPLY, it is received as character data that contains mixed data. Such character data can be converted to GRAPHIC data using the GRAPHIC BUILTIN.


Cheers,
