Help with an if / elseif

Hello.

Just wondering why my nested "if" sub ( o100 ) is not working. I want to stop a larger subroutine ( o<tool_length_probe> ) if the user has forgotten to put in a variable value i.e. left a zero.

When I test, it doesn't operate, but rather just skips over the sub and continues running on its merry way...

o100 if [#10 EQ 0]
elseif [#11 EQ 0]
elseif [#12 EQ 0]
elseif [#13 EQ 0]
elseif [#14 EQ 0]
elseif [#15 EQ 0]
elseif [#16 EQ 0]
elseif [#17 EQ 0]
elseif [#18 EQ 0]
(MSG, SOME PARAMETERS IN MACRO FILE NOT SET)
o<tool_length_probe> endsub
M2
o100 endif

Many thanks.

This untested idea with many 'OR' in one line and 'abort'
o<tool_length_probe> sub
o100 IF  [[#1 EQ 0] OR [#2 EQ 1] OR [#3 EQ 0] OR [#4 EQ 2] OR [#5 EQ 0]]
         (abort, SOME PARAMETERS IN MACRO FILE NOT SET)
         o<tool_length_probe> RETURN
o100 endif
o<tool_length_probe> endsub
M2

After some more reading I think it might need:
1. The sub number with each elseif and
2. The action to be taken with each elseif I.e. repeat

(MSG, SOME PARAMETERS IN MACRO FILE NOT SET)
o<tool_length_probe> endsub
M2

after each elseif so the interpreter knows what to do if any single elseif tests true...

Regarding the above, I'm interested to see whether an or statement works :)

The OR statement did work in this context.

Thanks!

You could also use [[#1 AND #2 AND #3] EQ 0] as zero == false.
