The STOP statement is virtually identical in function to the ABORT statement, except that it does not terminate a calling jCL program.

# Note

As of jBASE 5.7.1, the following UniVerse syntax is also supported when running in "universe" emulation:

STOPM {Expression { , Expression { , Expression ...}}  
1

or

STOPE {Expression { , Expression { , Expression ...}}  
1

The STOPM statement uses the STOPM item in the jBASE error message file, jbcmessages.

The STOPE statement simply uses a message in the jbcmessages file whose item id is the first 'Expression', so in fact operates is the same manner as STOP.
