|Description:||Concatenates several copies of a string.|
|Class:||Transformational function; Generic|
|Arguments:||STRING||Must be scalar and of type character.|
|NCOPIES||Must be scalar and of type integer. It must not be negative.|
|Results:||The result is a scalar of type character and length NCOPIES x LEN(STRING). The kind parameter is the same as STRING. The value of the result is the concatenation of NCOPIES copies of STRING.|
REPEAT ('S', 3) has the value SSS.
REPEAT ('ABC', 0) has the value of a zero-length string.
