STOP Statement

Purpose:

To terminate program execution and return to command level.

Syntax:

STOP

Comments:

STOP statements may be used anywhere in a program to terminate execution. When a STOP is encountered, the following message is printed:

Break in line nnnnn

Unlike the END statement, the STOP statement does not close files.

GW-BASIC always returns to command level after a STOP is executed. Execution is resumed by issuing a CONT command.

Examples:

10 INPUT A, B, C
20 K=A^2*5.3: L=B^3/.26
30 STOP
40 M=C*K+100: PRINT M
RUN
 ? 1, 2, 3
BREAK IN 30
PRINT L
 30.76923
CONT
 115.9
