else — Executes a block of code when an "if...then" condition is false.


Executes a block of code when an "if...then" condition is false.




else is used inside of a block of code between the "if...then" and endif opcodes. It defines which statements are executed when a "if...then" condition is false. Only one else statement may occur and it must be the last conditional statement before the endif opcode.


Here is an example of the else opcode. It uses the file else.csd.
