PEEK$ reads length characters from your address and returns it as a normal AMOS string.

s$=PEEK$(address, length)
S$=PEEK$(address, length,stop$)

address is the location of the first character to be read.

length holds the maximum number of characters to copy into the new string. If it's not a sensible value, the length will be assumed to be 65500.

stop$ sets an optional break character. If it's included, AMOS will stop reading the moment it encounters a stop$ character in your memory area.
