blockquote>VB (pre dotNet anyway) doesnt have a return statement, and normally relies on goto on err type logic for exception handling.

I don't know VB but I find this very surprising; 25 years ago my good ol' Microsoft MSX BASIC 1.0 had subs (that you'd call with GOSUB) and RETURN statements. Of course you couldn't name the subs, you had to rely upon line numbers :)

10 CLS 20 INPUT "choose a number", A$ 30 IF A$>10 GOSUB 100 40 if A$<5 GOSUB 100 50 PRINT "you typed ", A$ 60 END 99 REM the following 2 lines are a subroutine! 100 PRINT "you must enter a number between 5 and 10" 110 RETURN

Wow, I couldn't imagine I remembered that sh*t so well, should have been 20 years :)

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
