Thanks to those who responded to my query about
suppressing carriage returns. In trying to respond to
Pierre Zippi's email to me about adding ";"I realized that
this is not a FutureBASIC problem as such. It actually relates to
RTF coding. Theoretically in an RTF file the only carriage
returns to appear in a formatted doc. are those specifically coded by
"\par " So actually, returns put in by FB should never appear in the RTF
output.

Now it turns out I have "\par\par\par " appearing in my RTF
output from my program, which gives three unwanted returns
before my first text;  This has me mystified and searching thru'
a few thousand lines of code to figure out why.

My apologies to the group for taking up time on this,
but you see PRINT #2, string$; is not the answer.
