Line Numbers and Labels

Older versions of Basic require numbers at the beginning of every line. More recent versions do not support or require line numbers. Use of line numbers causes error messages.

Use a label to refer to a line of code. A label can be any combination of text and numbers. Usually it is a single word followed by a colon, placed at the beginning of a line of code. The Goto statement uses these labels.
