SYNTAX

(flatc  <expr> )
        <expr>          -       an expression

DESCRIPTION

The FLATC function determines the character length that would be printed if the <expr> were printed using PRINC. This means that the <expr> would be printed without a new-line. If <expr> is a string, it would not be printed with quotes around the string. The print character length is returned as the result.

(flatc "abcd")                          ; returns 4
