new pascal guy, but not a new programmer.
i'm used to being able to use the "return" reserved word in Java and
'C' to be able to short circuit the execution of a function/method.
over and above any philisophical judgments on my programming
technique, I see Free Pascal has a reserved word 'exit' that mimics
Is some analogy to "return" not supported in the official pascal dialect ?
is 'exit' the only way to do this, and obviously, not portable to
other compilers ?
is there another token that i could/should use ?
i do know that there is goto/label, but i would prefer not to use
that, as that construct has been beat into my head over the years as
being very bad.
