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 :)
20 INPUT "choose a number", A$
30 IF A$>10 GOSUB 100
40 if A$<5 GOSUB 100
50 PRINT "you typed ", A$
99 REM the following 2 lines are a subroutine!
100 PRINT "you must enter a number between 5 and 10"
Wow, I couldn't imagine I remembered that sh*t so well, should have been 20 years :)
