I think it's a runtime error, but....

I don't know what's wrong here. I think I'm getting a runtime error in this:

var name: string;
    numb: integer;
    wt: integer;
    AppFile: text;

procedure GETDATA (var localAppFile: text;
                   var localname: string;
                   var localnumb: integer;
                   var localwt: integer);

  begin
    readln (localAppFile, localname);
    readln (localAppFile, localnumb);
    readln (localAppFile, localwt);
  end; {GETDATA}

procedure POSITION;

    begin
      if (numb < 10) and (wt < 180) then
        writeln ('Accepted ');


      if not ((numb < 10) and (wt < 180)) then
           writeln ('Rejected ');
           writeln ('Your weight is more than the given weight ');
           writeln ('The number of cigarettes you smoke is over the limit ');
    end; {POSITION}

begin {main}
  assign (AppFile, 'A:\AppFile2.dat');
  reset (AppFile);
  while not seekeof (AppFile) do
     begin
        GETDATA (AppFile, name, numb, wt);
        POSITION;
     end;
  close (Appfile)
end.


This is what I get on the "Accepted" ones:
    "Accepted"
     "Your weight is more than the given weight"
     " The number of cigarettes you smoke is over the limit"

An IF statement only executes the next statement. As you can see, Rejected is only printed if the condition fails.
But the two lines after are executed everytime, as they are not part of the IF statement.

Solution:

Place a BEGIN and END around the three lines you want to execute only when the condiion fails.

But a better way would be this...


procedure POSITION;
begin
  if (numb < 10) and (wt < 180) then
    writeln ('Accepted ')
  else
  begin
    writeln ('Rejected ');
    writeln ('Your weight is more than the given weight ');
    writeln ('The number of cigarettes you smoke is over the limit ');
  end;
end; {POSITION}
