 You can think of a variable as a place in the computer'​s memory to store things. ​ Each variable has a name that must begin with a letter, and may consist of any number of letters, numbers, and dollar signs. ​ Their names are case sensitive, the variable '​a'​ is not the same as the variable "​A"​.\\ You can think of a variable as a place in the computer'​s memory to store things. ​ Each variable has a name that must begin with a letter, and may consist of any number of letters, numbers, and dollar signs. ​ Their names are case sensitive, the variable '​a'​ is not the same as the variable "​A"​.\\

 +In BASIC-256 you do not need to define a variable before you use it.  The variable is created when it is assigned a value for the first time and will retain its value until the program [[end|end]]s or the variable is [[unassign|unassign]]ed.
