In VB, we can declare several variables of the same type in this way:
Dim test1, value2, result as Integer
Or, multiple variables of different types like this:
Dim a, b, c As single, x, y as Double
In Mercury, there could also be this way of declaring multiple variables all of the same type:
Dim as Integer test1, value2, result
Although there is already a syntax for declaring several variables of the same type, I find this syntax very interesting. In freebasic, this syntax exist.
