Data Structure Primitives
does not work yet. (forget the rest of this description!)
outputs a word that, when printed, will appear like the input but displayed in standout mode (boldface, reverse video, or whatever your terminal does for standout). The word contains terminal-specific magic characters at the beginning and end; in between is the printed form (as if displayed using type) of the input. The output is always a word, even if the input is of some other type, but it may include spaces and other formatting characters. Note: a word output by STANDOUT while Logo is running on one terminal will probably not have the desired effect if printed on another type of terminal.
On the Macintosh, the way that standout works is incompatible with the use of characters whose ASCII code is greater than 127. Therefore, you have a choice to make: The instruction
disables standout, but enables the display of ASCII codes above 127, and the instruction
restores the default situation in which standout is enabled and the extra graphic characters cannot be printed.
