STOP


Halts program execution, and waits for a key press before ending the program.

Syntax:
declare sub Stop ( byval retval as long = 0 )

Usage:
Stop

Parameters:
retval
Error code returned to system.

Description:
Halts the execution of the program and stands by. It's provided as a help to debugging, as it preserves the memory and doesn't close files. For normal program termination the End keyword should be used. An optional return value, an integer, can be specified to return an error code to the system. If no return value is given, a value of 0 is automatically returned.

Note: STOP is not implemented properly yet; currently it is the same as SYSTEM.

Examples:
Print "this text is shown"
Sleep
Stop
Print "this text will never be shown"
