Exits a LOOP...REPEAT or FOR...NEXT statement.
statement takes no arguments.
statement can only be used within a LOOP...REPEAT
control structure to provide an alternate way to exit the loop. EXIT
transfers control to the statement immediately following the end of the loop structure (the NEXT or REPEAT keyword).
Any number of EXIT
statements may be placed anywhere in the block of code statements. EXIT
is commonly used with the evaluation of some condition (such as an IF...THEN
When used within nested loop statements,EXIT
only exits the loop in which it occurs; EXIT
transfers control to the loop that is nested one level above the exited loop.
statement can also be used to exit from a loop control structure. The CONTINUE
statement exits from the current iteration of a loop; the EXIT
statement exits from the loop.
In jBASE emulation mode, EXIT
has both an argumentless and an argumented form.
without an argument is used to exit a loop, as described above. The keyword BREAK
without an argument can also be used for this purpose.
with an argument is used to exit a program and return the argument value. The argument is commonly an integer code value.
