Reserved words for Macintosh QuickBASIC are listed on Pages 369-371 in Appendix B, "BASIC Reserved Words" in the "Microsoft QuickBASIC for Apple Macintosh: Language Reference" manual.

The reserved words that are not implemented are marked with an asterisk (*). The manual marks several reserved words with an asterisk, but fails to mention what the asterisk means.

Using a reserved word as the name of a variable or label usually results in a syntax error. Some reserved words (marked with asterisks) are not implemented, which means they do not perform any function in QuickBASIC. Unimplemented reserved words can be carryovers from other versions of BASIC or can potentially be added in future versions.
