The STOP (ST) statement ends the program and closes all files, and can also be used to reset the value of the CODE function.

Comments and Examples

STOP is an optional statement. When STOP is not specified, the system automatically ends a program after the last line in the program and sets the value of CODE to 0. In the following example, STOP indicates the end of the program and sets the value of CODE to 1:

00130 STOP 1

The STOP statement is useful to end a program before it tries to run GOSUBs, functions, or other lines that are placed outside the main body of the program for reference from earlier in the program.
