The DATA verb provides data to be read by the DREAD statement. Unlike many BASICs, PRO/5's DATA statement allows any numeric or string expressions (as opposed to constants). Each expression is evaluated as it is read by a DREAD. Any number of DATA statements may appear in a program. A DATA statement may not be part of a compound statement but may have a line label and is not allowed in console mode. See the DREAD verb for additional information.
