Exit abruptly from a function or procedure System unit
 procedure Exit ;
The Exit procedure abruptly terminates the current function or procedure.
If exiting a function, then Result contains the last set value.

Example code : Exit a proc when a user cancels data entry
  // Ask the user for their name
  ShowMessage('Name = '+AskForName);

// Ask the user for first and second names
function TForm1.AskForName: string;
  firstName, secondName : string;
  Result := 'Lazy person';
    if not InputQuery('Test program', 'First name :', firstName)
    then Exit;
    if not InputQuery('Test program', 'Second name :', secondName)
    then Exit;
  until (firstName <> '') or (secondName <> '');
