An important consideration when using the stack is to be symmetrical in the byte count of what is pushed and what is popped.
If the stack is not balanced on exit from an assembly code block (i.e., you POP too few or too many registers), your routine will return to the wrong location in your code. This is because PowerBASIC must assume that the last item on the stack is the address to which it should return.
In other words, if the stack is not balanced on exit from an assembly code block, program execution is likely to resume at the wrong address and instantly crash the program. In most instances, if you PUSH a given data size onto the stack, you must POP the same data size.
