If it's multi-line, the compiler doesn't know, and keeps adding code to the ELSE section. DAMHIKT :-)

Amen to your last statement!

I don't understand how an IF would know, for multiple lines, where it's 
supposed to end.
With a semi colon?  Horrible.
Computer languages should be written for humans to read, not machines.

mv basic doesn't require an END to an IF either

I'm in my current job because I was willing to learn Python at work and
on my own dime.  I took a beginner's course in Python at the University
of Washington because I didn't know much besides Prime Information,
Henco's Info, Structure/4, UniVerse, UniData and MITS.  It was fun to
learn Python as the syntax was so similar to Pick basic.  Program
controls is through indentation, which we usually use anyway.  They even
go Pick one better:
  an IF statement doesn't need an END.  They all require one, right, so
why
not assume it?  I love that thinking.   Learn some Python.  You'll be
glad
you did.
