End of Statement (Delphi and C++ Cross Reference Guide)

By Mike Prestwood

Delphi versus C++: A side by side comparison between Delphi and C++.

 
Language Basics
 

Language basics is kind of a catch all for absolute beginner stuff. The items (common names) I chose for language basics is a bit random and include items like case sensitivity, commenting, declaring variables, etc.

End of Statement

[Other Languages] 

Languages Focus

In coding languages, common End of statement specifiers include a semicolon and return (others exist too). Also of concern when studying a language is can you put two statements on a single code line and can you break a single statement into two or more code lines.

Delphi:   ;

Object Pascal uses a semicolon ";" as an end of statement specifier and you can put multiple statements on a single line of code and put a single statement on two or more code lines if you wish.

Syntax Example:  
WriteLn('Hello1');
WriteLn('Hello2');
WriteLn('Hello3');

//Same line works too:
WriteLn('Hello4'); WriteLn('Hello5');

//Two or more lines works too:
WriteLn
('Hello6');
C++:   ;

C++ uses a semicolon ";" as an end of statement specifier and you can put multiple statements on a single line of code if you wish as well as split a single statement into two or more code lines.

Syntax Example:
printf("Hello1");
printf("Hello2");
  
printf("Hello3"); printf("Hello4");
  
printf
   ("Hello5");
