levelline

Introduced in the 1990 ANSI M[UMPS] language standard.

This metalanguage symbol represents a line in a routine that does not start with a label that carries a formal parameter list (there still may be a label without a parameter list in such a line). This type of line is called levelline, because the line may have level indicator marks (periods) following its line start white space.
