Primitive functions

These are primitive SNOBOL4 functions which are not predicates or pattern functions. Any of these functions can be redefined by the user using DEFINE(). When calling any SNOBOL4 function, if an argument is omitted, the corresponding parameter value is set to null (null string). Note that a null string converts into a zero when it is the operand of an arithmetic operation.
