CONST

Compatible with:
DOS Maximite CMM MM150 MM170 MM+ MMX Picromite ArmiteL4 Armite F4 ArmiteH7 CMM2

Syntax:
CONST id = expression [, id = expression] ...

Description:
Create a constant identifier which cannot be changed once created.
'id' is the identifier which follows the same rules as for variables. 
The identifier can have a type suffix (!, %, or $) but it is not required.  If it is specified it must match the type of 'expression'. 
'expression' is the value of the identifier and it can be a normal expression (including user defined functions) which will be evaluated when the constant is created.
A constant defined outside a sub or function is global and can be seen throughout the program. 
A constant defined inside a sub or function is local to that routine and will hide a global constant with the same name.
