Subject 3.2 BASIC Guide page 39 ResultString should be Result
Date Thu, 19 Jan 2017 21:42:28 GMT
Hi guys,

I'm just hoping to fix this error in the 3.2 BASIC Guide

Manual.  It's on the top of page 39:

    *"Search and Replace* Basic provides the InStr function for searching for a
    partial string within another string:

    ResultString = InStr (MyString, SearchString)

    The SearchString parameter specifies the string to be searched for
    within MyString . The function returns a
    number that contains the position at which the SearchString first
    appears within MyString ; a return value of
    zero indicates no match.  ..."

*ResultString* should probably be simply *Result*.  It is not a string, 
but as the text below it says, a number.

I'm happy to learn what it takes to fix it, or ok if someone else fixes it.
