Statements and Declarations Foundation

This chapter describes statements and declarations. Statements are used to define the logical flow of a program. They define control structures like branches or loops. Declarations are essential for the definition of identifiers. An identifier is a symbolic name used as a place holder to access variables, functions or procedures. Declarations and statements are both translated to executable code by the compiler.
