Multi-Line Instructions

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

As seen before, an instruction can be split over multiple lines, using the symbol -> at the end of each line. However we do not recommend it; if an instruction is that long, it is probably important and complex and you will benefit from breaking it down into many simpler instructions.

 

Note that, in the case of an instruction continued over many lines, each string must be closed in the line where it begins.

 

sTemp = 'The quick brown fox jumped ->

       over the old lazy dog' // wrong

 

sTemp = 'The quick brown fox jumped' + ->

      'over the old lazy dog' // correct

 

Failure to do so will result in the compiler syntax error.
