Error Code M8

M[UMPS] by Example

Right Hand Pointer

M8, Undefined svn

Introduced in the 1995 ANSI M[UMPS] language standard.

The intrinsic special variables ($X, $IO, etcetera) always have a value. This error means that a reference was encountered to an entity that has the syntax of an intrinsic special variable name, but that does not exist as such, e.g. $Device in an implentation that meets the 1990 standard, but not the 1995 standard, or $CPU.
