Msgbox command
Is there any reason in your mind for not having a title in a message box?
INPUT and CHOOSE have a title field while MSGBOX don’t have this feature.
Is there a particular reason for this?

Sometimes i add a title myself adding somthing like
“ ### TITLE ###

My output”

Obviously the indentation is not at its best...

The second note is related to the size of the box. I noticed that i was able to print in a single row all the letters from A to Z then the rest of the message goes in the second row and so on.

If you decide to print a single letter or number, the size of the box is very small. I like this feature because i think that the aim was also not to cover the whole screen and see what happen in the rest of it.

Do you think that having more control on this command would be a plus? For sure build this command from scratch won’t be very difficult but, for me, program portability is a must...

RE: Msgbox command
Having a title field would be useful, but I suspect most users would find it more useful to be able to print out more.

When adding several MSGBOXs for debugging, it can be difficult to keep track of which answer relates to which variable. Having the variable name/MSGBOX parameter appear as a "title" would help.
