The END statement terminates a program without an immediate exit or ends a procedure or statement block.


Syntax:

END
END IF
END TYPE
END SELECT
END SUB
END FUNCTION

QB64 Syntax:

END [return_code%]
END DECLARE


  • In QB64 END can be followed by a code that can be read in another module using the _SHELL or _SHELLHIDE function.
  • When END is used to end a program a pause and "Press any key to continue..." is displayed at the bottom of the window.
  • If the program does not use END or SYSTEM the program will still end with a pause and display "Press any key to continue...".
  • In QB64 SYSTEM will end the program immediately and close the window.
  • The QB64 _EXIT (function) can block a user's Ctrl + Break key press or click on the window X box until the program is ready.
  • When running a Qbasic BAS module from the command line, use SYSTEM to avoid returning to the IDE.


Example: In QB64 you won't return to the IDE unless you are using it to run or edit the program module.

PRINT "Hello world!" END PRINT "Hello no one!"

Returns:

Hello world! Press any key to continue...

Explanation:"Hello no one!" isn't returned because the program ended with the END statement no matter what is after that.
The message "Press any key to continue..." is displayed after the program ends in QB or QB64.
