Keywords (topic)

A keyword is any word or symbol recognized by the Basic Control Engine as part of the language. All of the following are keywords:

Built-in subroutine names, such as MsgBox and Print.

Built-in function names, such as Str$, CDbl, and Mid$.

Special keywords, such as To, Next, Case, and Binary.

Names of any extended language elements.


All keywords are reserved by the Basic Control Engine , in that you cannot create a variable, function, constant, or subroutine with the same name as a keyword. However, you are free to use all keywords as the names of structure members.
