draw BOX


!-B-


!-B- draw box ___________________
This code will draw a box with the upper-left corner positioned
at the current column position, on the current line.


!-B[<width>][,<depth>]-


PARAMETERS __________
Both <width> and <depth> must be greater than one.
If either parameter is omitted, its value will be the same as
that of the previous box. If no box has previously been
specified, an error will occur (represented by a long string of
dashes).
NOTES _____
No format code may be concatenated after a box code (using the
semi-colon, ";"). However, if a full specification is given
(including the exclamation point, "!"), a format code is
allowed.
This code acts like a conditional page code (!-K-) in that a
box may not be split over a page.
A tab code preceeding a box code which forces a new page will
be ignored (i.e., the box will be left justified). To allow
for this, the user should precede the box and tab codes with a
separate conditional page code.
A box starts drawing at the last tab position (therefore
multiple boxes on a line must be drawn with a !+GRID+ code).
Complicated sketches within boxes and other diagrams can be
drawn using the !+GRID+ alter code.
