Right justification on screen

Right justification on screen when printing variables which have a different length.

In Extended BASIC you would use the extended command PRINT USING but in TI BASIC you need to carry out the formatting yourself.

Here is a quick routine for right justification (useful when using columns of numbers).

The variable to be printed is in the string variable A$

To convert numbers to strings use eg STR$(42)

Place the value of the rightmost column to be used in variable RC:

           FOR C=1 TO X
           A$=" "&A$     (this adds one space in front of A$)
           NEXT C
           PRINT A$
