stop( : : : )
stop operator stops the continuous program execution of the
If this happens, the
PC remains on the
(instead of being placed at the next executable program line)
to show the reason for the program interruption directly even
if numerous comments or other non-executable program lines follow.
The operator is equivalent to the
Stop action (F9)
in the menu bar.
Unless parallel execution is used (via the
the program can easily be continued with the
Run action (F5).
See also “Parallel Execution” in the
HDevelop User's Guide.
It is possible to redefine the behavior by setting a time parameter in the preferences dialog. In this case, the execution will not stop but continue after waiting for the specified period of time. Within this period of time, the program can be interrupted with F9 or continued with one of the run commands. This is marked by an icon in the first column of the program window.
This operator is not supported for code export.
Trying to continue a program that uses parallel execution after calling
stop may cause non-deterministic thread behavior or errors.

If the program stops at a
stop statement, the return state
of the previous operator is kept.
If the program is continued with the
stop always returns TRUE.
