END

Syntax

END
END ASM
END FUNCTION
END IF
END SUB
END TYPE

The END command terminates the execution of the program immediately. It can be used within the normal program flow and/or (optionally) at the very end of the program.

The END keyword may also be used to mark the end of an ASM, FUNCTION, IF, SUB or TYPE block. See the linked pages for details.

Examples

' print a common phrase and then terminate the program
PRINT "Hello, world!"
END

' terminate a program if a specific condition has been met
' and continue on if not
DIM a AS TYPE BYTE
LET a = 5
PRINT "I just stopped in to see what condition my condition..."
IF a = 5 THEN
    PRINT "...was in."
    END
ELSE
    PRINT "...wasn't in."
END IF
PRINT "If you can read this, I wasn't in the correct condition."
END

In the first example above, the END statement terminates the program after the PRINT statement.

Note

The END statement is optional if positioned at the end of the program's running code and logic flow.

In the second example, because the condition specified in the IF statement is TRUE at runtime, the program terminates immediately following PRINT "…was in." and no additional code is executed.
