Small Basic - Other Names for Subroutines

Subroutines, Methods, Procedures, and Functions

Subroutines are also called different names in other programming languages. The terms method, procedure, function, and subroutine are used to describe the same thing—a series of statements that have been grouped together to perform a certain task. In Small Basic and generally speaking, methods are functions that are part of an object. A function is a method that returns a value; a procedure is a method that doesn’t return a value.
