p - print a value Matthew Miller
p 57 print 57
p log(3|27) print log base 3 of 27
p $3 print the value of string variable 3
p .ndat print the current scan number
p #1=2 assign the value 2 to global numeric
variable 1 and print it
p $5="hello" dp: assign the value "hello" to string
variable 5 but don't print it.
Same as c $5="hello".
p .numst nl:;p .dl nl:;p .db print the stack number of the stack in stack

Same as c #=#+1.
p .rms1=.25 change the value of rms in the stack 1
header to 0.25
p .stak2(68) print the value of channel 68 of stack2.
p .stak1(68)= 10 set channel 68 of stack1 to 10 for a test.
P is used to evaluate an expression and print the result. Often p is
used for the side effect of assigning a new value to a global or header
variable during evaluation. In this case the dp: flag can be used to
The 'nl' flag will make p print two spaces instead of a line feed at the end.
The dp: flag suppresses the printing; this feature is superseded by the
