Asks the Video interface for a string and allocates space for the string on the heap. The string is stored as a sequence of characters starting with the first character at the lowest available heap location. The memory address of the string is pushed onto the stack. The string is null-terminated. If there is no video card, the instruction performs the operation above on an empty string.
