FLOW CONTROL

    RC BASIC uses the same conventions of other programming languages to control the flow of the program.  There are two main ways of getting your program to decide on its next course of action.  The most common way is with the IF statement block.

    If 5 > 6 Then
        Print "THIS WILL NOT PRINT"
    ElseIf 5 < 6 Then
        Print "THIS WILL PRINT"
    Else
        Print "THIS ALSO WILL NOT PRINT"
    End If

    The above example does different comparisons and will output text to a console depending on which condition is true.

    The next method of control flow is the SELECT statement block.

    Select Case 5
    Case 6
        Print THIS WILL NOT PRINT"
    Case 5
        Print "THIS WILL PRINT"
    Default
        Print "THIS WILL NOT PRINT"
    End Select

    The above example will compare each case in the block to the SELECT CASE.  If the case is equal to the select case then the code in that case will be executed.
