Place of label in case of error handling.

Postby BasicJan » Oct 23, 2005 18:05

In case of error handling, a label is used;


In case of QuickBasic the label must be outside the SUB or FUNCTION, in case of FreeBasic the label must be inside.

Can this be changed in such a way that FreeBasic accepts placement of the label outside the SUB or FUNCTION as well?

(Looks like the place of DATA-statements which was not QuickBasic-compatible either. This was changed in the 0.15-testing version, making placement of DATA-statements both inside and outside the SUB or FUNCTION possible.)

You just have to declare the error handler label before the function that will reference it with ON ERROR, no forward declaration is allowed.

ON LOCAL ERROR is more safe inside procs than setting a global handler and using ON ERROR GOTO 0 to undefine it.

Are the error handlers separate procedures in FB? If not, i can't figure out how to define the handler BEFORE the ON ERROR. I used to put the handlers after the END of the main program or an EXIT SUB/FUNCTION, but that's AFTER the ON ERROR.

Could you post an example?
