exit <label>   statement



Syntax:
exit "label"

Description:
This statement causes the program to jump to the statement following the indicated label. Unlike the goto statement, the exit <label> statement makes sure that any loops, long if blocks, local fn's, etc., that are being "jumped out" of get properly closed, so that the stack will be in a consistent state.
If an exit "Label" is in the main program, the "Label" must be inside the main. If an exit "Label" is in a local fn, the "Label" must be inside the same local fn. If an exit "Label" is nested inside one or more select [case] statements, the "Label" must be after the last end select.
Any exceptions to the above conditions could result in substantial penalties or crashes.
