End of Statement (PHP and Corel Paradox Cross Reference Guide)

By Mike Prestwood

PHP versus Corel Paradox: A side by side comparison between PHP and Corel Paradox.

Language Basics

Language basics is kind of a catch all for absolute beginner stuff. The items (common names) I chose for language basics is a bit random and include items like case sensitivity, commenting, declaring variables, etc.

End of Statement

[Other Languages] 

Languages Focus

In coding languages, common End of statement specifiers include a semicolon and return (others exist too). Also of concern when studying a language is can you put two statements on a single code line and can you break a single statement into two or more code lines.

PHP:   ;
Syntax Example:
echo "Hello";
Corel Paradox:   whitespace

ObjectPAL is a bit unique in that it doesn't use a semicolon nor a return to mark the end of a line, it uses whitespace which can be a return, space, or tab. This is a bit unusual but does allow for some nice formatting of code.

Syntax Example:  
msgInfo("", "Hello1")
msgInfo("", "Hello2")
msgInfo("", "Hello3")

;The following single line of code also works.
msgInfo("", "Hello4") msgInfo("", "Hello5")

;Two or more works too:
("", "Hello6")
