2) the "printer on" statement.
3) a "heading", "footing" or "page" statement.
All of the "@" functions provided with the print "statement" are allowed.
When expressions are separated by commas, the next expression is output starting at the column position defined by the next output tab.
A colon at the end inhibits the output of a carriage return / linefeed following the output of the last printed line.
