====== Macro RETURN ====== ====Syntax==== * **return** //[result]// ====Arguments and Values==== * //result// - a //[[CL:Glossary:form]]//; evaluated. The default is **[[CL:Constant Variables:nil]]**. ====Description==== Returns, as if by **[[CL:Special Operators:return-from]]**, from the //[[CL:Glossary:block]]// named **[[CL:Constant Variables:nil]]**. ====Examples==== <blockquote> ([[CL:Special Operators:block]] [[CL:Constant Variables:nil]] (return) 1) <r>[[CL:Constant Variables:NIL]]</r> ([[CL:Special Operators:block]] [[CL:Constant Variables:nil]] (return 1) 2) <r>1</r> ([[CL:Special Operators:block]] [[CL:Constant Variables:nil]] (return ([[CL:Functions:values]] 1 2)) 3) <r>1 2</r> ([[CL:Special Operators:block]] [[CL:Constant Variables:nil]] ([[CL:Special Operators:block]] alpha (return 1) 2)) <r>1</r> ([[CL:Special Operators:block]] alpha ([[CL:Special Operators:block]] [[CL:Constant Variables:nil]] (return 1)) 2) <r>2</r> ([[CL:Special Operators:block]] [[CL:Constant Variables:nil]] ([[CL:Special Operators:block]] [[CL:Constant Variables:nil]] (return 1) 2)) <r>1</r> </blockquote> ====Affected By==== None. ====Conditions==== None. ====See Also==== * **[[CL:Special Operators:block|Special Operator BLOCK]]** * **[[CL:Special Operators:return-from|Special Operator RETURN-FROM]]** * {\secref\Evaluation} ====Notes==== <blockquote> (return) ≡ ([[CL:Special Operators:return-from]] [[CL:Constant Variables:nil]]) (return //form//) ≡ ([[CL:Special Operators:return-from]] [[CL:Constant Variables:nil]] //form//) </blockquote> The //[[CL:Glossary:implicit blocks]]// //[[CL:Glossary:established]]// by //[[CL:Glossary:macro|macros]]// such as **[[CL:Macros:do]]** are often named **[[CL:Constant Variables:nil]]**, so that **[[CL:Macros:return]]** can be used to exit from such //[[CL:Glossary:form|forms]]//.
