ELSE



ELSE

     Provides an alternate execution sequence within an IF
     statement.

SYNTAX

     ELSE


PARAMETERS

     None.


OPERATION

     The ELSE command is used only in conjunction with the IF and
     ELSEIF commands.  The IF command is used with the ENDIF command,
     and optionally with the ELSE command, to control the execution
     of a job.  The IF, ENDIF, and optional ELSE and ELSEIF commands
     constitute an IF block.  A logical expression is evaluated, and if
     true, the IF block is executed; if false, the ELSE block (if one
     exists) is executed.

     This command may be issued from a session, job, a program, or in
     BREAK.  Pressing [Break] has no effect on this command.
