SALIERI Language - type

type: object -> string

Call syntax:

The function type returns the type of its argument as a character string. The result is one of the following: "boolean", "integer", "real", "string", "sequence", "segment", "list", "package", "function", "internal function". Macros and blocks are treated as subclasses of function here; for references the type of the dereferenced object is returned.

> type(1)
Result= "integer"
> r := 1/2; type(r)
Result= "real"
> type(exit)
Result= "internal function"

See also: exists.
