Constants and Literals

PowerBASIC programs process two distinct classes of data: variables and constants.  A variable is allowed to change its value as a program runs.  A constant's value is fixed at compile-time, and cannot change during program execution (hence, it remains constant).  PowerBASIC supports four types of constants: string literals, numeric literals, string equates and numeric equates.
