Basic Rules for Simple SVB Programs

Main program. At a minimum, every program consists of the Main routine, which is declared as Sub Main at the beginning, and terminated with an End Sub at the end.

Comments. All lines that start with a single quotation mark or the keyword REM are interpreted as comments.

Continuation lines. You can break single commands into multiple lines by terminating each line with an underscore ("_"; which must be separated from the preceding text by a blank space).

Help on SVB keywords. At any time, to learn more about the different keywords and statements used in a program, you can highlight the respective text and then press F1 to display the general SVB help. The help text will explain the syntax for the respective keyword or statement and provide simple examples on how to use them.
