8.14 PRINT SPACE

     PRINT SPACE [OUTFILE='file_name'] [ENCODING='encoding'] [n_lines].

PRINT SPACE prints one or more blank lines to an output file.

The OUTFILE subcommand is optional. It may be used to direct output to a file specified by file name as a string or file handle (see File Handles). If OUTFILE is not specified then output will be directed to the listing file.

The ENCODING subcommand may only be used if OUTFILE is also used. It specifies the character encoding of the file. See INSERT, for information on supported encodings.

n_lines is also optional. If present, it is an expression (see Expressions) specifying the number of blank lines to be printed. The expression must evaluate to a nonnegative value.
