Title Number to String
Description NUM2STR is a useful sub-routine that converts any number into a String (if you're reading this, you should already understand it's not possible to store a number as a string). What sets this program apart from the others is that it is faster AND smaller than any other BASIC routine on ticalc.org

First, the positive, this program is very easy to use and would probably provide beginners with something to learn the basics of BASIC from. It does /almost/ everything it says. Truly, it only converts real positive integers to strings, not numbers.

Usability - 10/10

There is nothing wrong with the usability. The parameter passing is as expected.

Code - 2/10

The code is quite unoptimized with regards to size and speed. In short, his algorithm goes from right-to-left and converts the number to a string, then proceeds to flip the string around. There is absolutely no need for the post-process flipping when you can simply reorder the way in which you concatenate to the string.

Features - 5/10

It only comes through with half of the features it truly should offer! As I said before, it only converts positive real integers. At least it should include all integers. On top of that it should be able to convert decimals to a string as well.

Overall - 17/30

To be terse, roll ("write") your own implementation, or go to any comprehensive BASIC forum and ask around. I would definitely not download this program, unless the author updated it.
