UBasic exit_alt not working

A question from Nando on the sx200 porting thread raised the question of exit_alt usage in UBasic.

After testing it seems that this command is no longer working.

(Lua exit_alt works fine )

I checked the UBasic on camera and in the UBasic debuger under Windows XP, both give the same failure.

Anyone have any ideas ?.

Thanks OldGit.

I've just looked at the code for the debugger (which is a direct copy of the CHDK code). It seems that the exit_alt statement expects an operand. Thus:
  exit_alt
fails with a parse error, but
  exit_alt 0
works fine. The code doesn't seem to do anything with the operand. Here's the code in ubasic.c
Code: [Select]
static void exit_alt_statement()
{
    int to;
    accept(TOKENIZER_EXIT_ALT);
    to = expr();
    exit_alt(to);
    accept_cr();
}
