Line numbers or line labels are used to mark GOTO or GOSUB procedure lines or all code lines as in GW Basic.


Syntax

GOTO {line number| line label}


  • Line numbers or labels are used to denote a specific line of code with a colon when separating it from a code line.
  • GOSUB or DATA block line labels can be numerical or text line names. RESTORE can use the label to reuse data.
  • GOSUB blocks require a RETURN with a line label or number or none to return to the original call.
  • GOTO can refer to a specific numerical line number or text line labels.
  • Line numbers are no longer required in QB64 except for GOSUB or GOTO situations!
