I hate it when that happens, Exchange server goes down and by the time
it comes back you forget where/what you were doing.

Any here is the remaing part of that last message that helps it make
sense.


if instead the continue were next sentence
and  the code was:
If Condition
     Do this
     Do that
else
     Next sentence
End-If
stmt
stmt
stmt
.
>Here is where next sentence is.

Do you see the problem the compiler has? what does the coder mean??
given the choice the period rules with next sentence. As far as I know,
this is not truely an OPM/ILE issue it is more an issue of usage and
intent and the way the compiler(OPM or ILE) interprets the code.

Hope this clears up at least where I am comming from.
