        I didn't need all those lines or line numbers:

        DECLARE STRING CONSTANT T="AWESOME!"
        PRINT SPACE$(I);MID$(T,I,1) FOR I=1 TO LEN(T)

                  No, it's definitely BASIC but it's compiled, not interpreted, BASIC.
                  Declaring the string constant removes the copy of the literal string
                  into the variable; thus, making it more efficient since there is no
                  write or update to the string variable and therefore, no need for a
                  string variable. It's all just read. Doing so trimmed abotu 50 in-
                  structions from the original posted code.

                  FWIW, the original doesn't run on my Sharp EL-5500.
