Charout   built-in function

The Charout function attempts to write a sequence of characters to an output stream and returns how many characters remain to be written. When all characters are written 0 is returned.

When all characters could not be written the NOTREADY condition is raised.

CAUTION: in some environments a Charout request may erase all existing data in the stream.

When the string and start arguments are both omitted, the stream is CLOSED and 0 is returned.

When the string argument is omitted, and the start arguments is present the current write position of the stream is set to the start position, and 0 is returned.
