Basic program prob

I am using basic to write a program and have encountered a problem.
I need to use many 'and' 'or' statements and have run out of sufficient line length.
Does anyone know how to increase usable line length or continue condition statements onto the next line?

thanks in advance

Couldn't you use more than one statement? If the condition is true up to a point then it's ok to continue the check on another line, if the condition is false anywhere in the first statement then no need to check the second because you've hit your else condition.

Can you give us an example of what you are trying to do ?

Here is an example of what you can do, its not the amiga basic syntax but you can get the Idea.

If (x=50 and y=70 and mousebutton=1) or (x=70 and y=80 and mousebutton=1) or (x=110 and y=200 and mousebutton=1)
In case they need to do all the same thing,then you can split it into following:

If mousebutton=1
  If x=50 and y=70 then check=1     
  if x=70 and y=89 then check=1
  if x=110 and y=200 then check=1
  (here you can use as many if's as you need) 

If check=1 
of course there are many ways to write this, so an example is needed with an explanation of what should be checked.
