So with all the language updates in 2019r2.1 ; are we still in love with THEN? Is there some significance I am not aware of? It is probably the most common compiler error I see. Every time I see the red 'X', I am like - really? "Why don't you just put it in there and continue compiling!" Even after years of typing it sometimes the brain continues the thought and I continue typing - grammar and syntax excluded from thought - and there is sits, the lonely IF missing its pal THEN.
I'm not advocating the extinction of THEN, just a consideration of -
• Ignoring it during compile (being there, or not to be)
• Automatically adding it (compiler) if it is missing
