Const #<name> = <expr>
Const statement allows you to declare a new constant. The
name you specify in
name must be prefixed with a hash character (#).
expr must be a constant (!) expressions, i.e. you must not use any
variables here. For example:
Const #MYCONSTANT = (5 * 10) / 2 ; #MYCONSTANT = 25 Const #MYCONSTANT2 = #MYCONSTANT * 10 ; #MYCONSTANT2 = 250 Const #MYCONSTANT3 = b * 5 ; does not work!
The last example will not work because a variable is used and the expression must be constant.
expr can also be a constant string expression. E.g.
Const #PRGVERSTRING = "$VER: MyProgram 1.0 (13.04.2005)"
Constants can also be declared from the command line by using the -setconstants console argument. This is especially useful in connection with the @IF preprocessor command. See Console arguments for details.
