SUBST$ command tutorial

SUBST$ is a command that can replace part of a string. It looks like this.


  1. StartString acts as the full string in which to replace text.
  2. placement acts as a number that sets the start position to remove text.
  3. ReplaceString acts as the string that will be replacing the removed text.
  4. CharacterCount is an optional parameter that chooses how long the removed text will be, if left empty it will be one (I think)


This can be used in many situations like syntax replacement alongside INSTR.
