You have uncovered the mess that is the handling of different kinds of variables in MicroWorlds:


Since you are working with "State" "Project" variables (see picture)

the way to know their value is, as the Help mentions:

============createprojectvar "amount
setamount 22
show amount
notice that "amount" does not have the colon character before the a.

Therefore, change this part:

savetext (word "command :i ".txt)

into this:

savetext (word "command i ".txt)

  • To save an attachment to your computer, PC users should right-click (Mac users, click and hold the mouse button) on the link and then choose 'save target as' from the pop-up menu. A window will then pop up in which you can choose a location for the file.
