You can also store large strings or programming sequences in the sequence variables, u, v, and w.

Oh, yeah.  Another strike against finance Vars is that you can't DelVar them.
Really? That is rather strange. I didn't know that. I wonder why not? That's good to know though. :)

Just tested, you can.

You can, but it doesn't set it to zero. It deletes any integer that is inside it looks like because if you try to use it then it will pull an ERR:UNDEFINED.

You can also store large strings or programming sequences in the sequence variables, u, v, and w.

What do you mean?

Quick!  Run, look at Homescreen Game Pack. ;D
In it I do stuff like this:
"42=abs(Ans-63->u
...
getKey
If u
Then
.You Pressed 2nd or Enter

So basically it's like using a string without using expr( to get the answer?

@ Ztrumpet: I could be wrong, but I thought "->" couldn't not be used with the sequence variables, that they could only evaluate expressions.

The -> is storing it to u in the first place. :)

You can't use it INSTRING. You can use it to store to it though.

EDIT: Ninja'd.

Ok, I wasn't sure what you meant. I just wanted to clarification that it couldn't be used inside the string. =)

Actually, ztrumpet.

Your use of that code [42=abs(Ans-63->u] is genius.

Props. :D

So I just was messing with u and got some interesting results (was trying to see if maybe could use it to shorten Battle Ship anymore :P)

So I stored "sub(Str1,1,1" to u with "12345" in Str1. When I did u+u I of course got 11 displayed on the left side, signifying it is a string, which made sense. But when I did expr(u+u it displayed 11 on the right side like a integer...but 1+1 isn't 11...any clue what's happening?

Sorry for getting this a bit off-topic, just curious now.

since you established u+u = "11" (notice the quotes, it's a string.), what's expr("11")?

edit: if you're looking for the answer two, try this code:

expr(u)+expr(u)
