CONTINUE

Syntax

CONTINUE or

CONTINUE [line_no](Toolkit II & Minerva only)

Location QL ROM, Toolkit II

This command allows the user to try and recover from an error (normally after STOP or pressing the Break key), by telling the interpreter to carry on running the program from the next statement. This will however not work if the message ‘PROC/FN Cleared’.

If you have Toolkit II, Minerva installed, you will be able to use the second variant of this command which allows you to re-start processing at a specified line number to help with error trapping.

NOTE 1

CONTINUE cannot carry on processing where the line which was stopped was a direct command (ie. typed in at #0).

NOTE 2

Unless you are using the Toolkit II or Minerva variants of this command, do not try to use CONTINUE after RENUMbering the program, as the continuation table is not updated by the RENUM routine and may therefore try to jump to the old line number.

NOTE 3

Beware that RENUM does not renumber line_no if you have used this command as part of a program.

NOTE 4

CONTINUE can only re-start processing if no new lines have been added; no new variables have been added to the program; no lines have been altered; and the PROC/FN Cleared message has not appeared.
