#2✎ 198MZ952Intermediate ProgrammerI can make programs, but I still have trouble here and there. Programming StrengthDrawingI like to draw!HobbiesReadingI like to read books!HobbiesCOPY seems to do it too. During my fiddling, I found that RINGCOPY doesn't treat strings as arrays like PUSH, UNSHIFT, COPY, yadda yadda do.
COPY A$,0,"!" 'Works fine
RINGCOPY A$,0,"!" 'Type Mismatch Error
Also, I used to work with strings a lot when I began learning SB. I wonder how this bug went unnoticed for so long and how much my virgin programmer self has suffered because of it.
Edit: didn't take me long to find out why RINGCOPY is different, it simply doesn't allow strings, which is odd because that doesn't seem to be mentioned in its manual page. I get that it's for Sound Processing though, it's just not explicit in the documentation that the function doesn't work on string arrays.
