Description separates multiple Pick/BASIC statements on a single line.

AP allows a Pick/BASIC statement to end with a semi-colon because it allows "null" or blank lines in a program. Non AP implementations do not allow this feature.
Syntax statement {; statement...}

This shows multiple statements on a single line.

for i=1 to 9; crt field(s,' ',i); next i
This shows a "for-next" loop on the same line.
