In program mode, GTO.. is intended to enter a new program at the end of program memory. The program counter is positioned at the last END. Positioning to the END is necessary because a new step will be entered after the displayed step. The END still belongs to the last program and thus its labels are still active.

The behavior of GTO.. out of program mode is the same. If you want to go to the beginning of the first program you can enter RTN from the keyboard.

Edit: The BEG annunciator is lit when the program counter is either at step 000 or at step 001. Step 000 doesn't actually exist, it's just a dummy to enable entering something at step 001 in program mode. From the point of view of running a program both are equivalent.

Well, wouldn't be better if we had a permanent .END. at the end of the program memory and GTO .. positioned the program counter on it so no program in RAM is active anymore and BEG annunciator turns on? Thus we'd know that soft keys aren't active and default functionality is in force just by looking at the display?
Just thinking.
