Examples: Byte data type

Example 1

' The variables count and nextNum are explicitly declared
' as type Byte. There is no suffix character for Byte, so a
' variable of type Byte cannot be declared implicitly.
Dim count as Byte
Dim nextNum as Byte
count = 1
nextNum = count + 1
Print count; nextNum	' Output:	1   2

Example 2

' Use Byte data type to retrieve single byte from a file
Dim b As Byte
Dim FF As Integer
FF = Freefile
Open "myfile.data" For Binary Access Read As ff
While (Not Eof(ff)) 
	Get #ff, ,b
Close #ff
