Abbreviation: C <SHIFT+O>
Action: This command re-starts the execution of a program which
was halted by a STOP or END
statement or the <RUN/STOP> key being pressed. The program
will restart at the exact place from which it left off.
While the program is stopped, the user can inspect or change
any variables or look at the program. When debugging or examining
a program, STOP statements can be placed
at strategic locations to allow examination of variables and to
check the flow of the program.
The error message CAN'T CONTINUE will result from editing the
program (even just hitting <RETURN> with the cursor on an
unchanged line), or if the program halted due to an error, or
if you caused an error before typing CONT to restart the program.
EXAMPLE of CONT Command:
30 PRINT PI
40 C=C+4:GOTO 20
This program calculates the value of PI. RUN
this program, and after a short while hit the <RUN/STOP>
key. You will see the display:
BREAK IN 20 NOTE: Might be different number.
Type the command PRINT C to see how far the Commodore 64 has
gotten. Then use CONT to resume from where the Commodore 64 left
