    PB/WIN - Built-in string equates
    The compiler also provides a set of built-in string equates. These offer convenience as well as self-documentation.

    The following table shows the ANSI form, each of which begins with a single dollar-sign ($). The compiler also includes and offers a wide Unicode version of each of them, identified by a double dollar-sign ($$). For example, $NUL returns a byte with the character code zero (0), while $$NUL returns a word with the character code zero (0).

    Code:
