x command (PROC processor)

The x command serves two purposes:

  • In a mainline (PROC) routine, the x command functions as a stop command and halts the PROC.

  • In a subroutine, the x command acts as a return statement, and returns control to the next executable line after the one that invoked it.


x {text}{+}


text Text to display to the terminal before exiting.
+ Suppresses the usual carriage return at the end of the text.
