if not(cond) then Jump Label1
cmd1
cmd2
Jump Label2
*
Label1:
cmd3
cmd4
*
Label2:
That's all folks

I think SMI's RPL has this type of requirement If you mean the IF knows
when it ENDS because it hits a JUMP that's not a very nice solution....

since I often find myself working in mvBasic, Delphi, C#, javascript and
sometimes VB.NET at the same time it is the multiline end and else
syntax that is the one that trips me.

Basic

If cond Then
blah
End Else
blah
End

Delphi

If cond Then Begin
blah;
End Else Begin
blah;
End;

VB.NET

If cond Then
blah
Else
blah
End If

.. So sometimes the C# and javascript braces are welcome!

But I would add that good code is beautiful irrespective of the
syntactic vagaries of the chosen language - except for TSQL of course
which is always horrible. <grin>
