EXIT "label"

Description edit

This statement causes the program to jump to the statement following the indicated label. Unlike the GOTO statement, the EXIT <label> statement makes sure that any loops, LONG IF blocks, LOCAL FN's, etc., that are being "jumped out" of get properly closed, so that the stack will be in a consistent state.

If an EXIT "Label" is in the main program, the "Label" must be inside the main. If an EXIT "Label" is in a LOCAL FN, the "Label" must be inside the same LOCAL FN. If an EXIT "Label" is nested inside one or more SELECT [CASE] statements, the "Label" must be after the last END SELECT.

Any exceptions to the above conditions could result in substantial penalties or crashes.
