Right Hand Pointer

lineref

Introduced in the 1977 ANSI M[UMPS] language standard.

This metalanguage symbol represents a reference to a line in a M[UMPS] program. Such a reference consists of a label (either directly or indirectly specified), optionally followed by an off-set specification.

Since a lineref does not allow for a routine specification, this metalanguage symbol is limited to the lines in the current routine.

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

The metalanguage symbol lineref no longer occurs, instead the more general entity entryref and the more specific entity labelref are used.

routineref

Introduced in the 1977 ANSI M[UMPS] language standard.

This metalanguage symbol represents a reference to a routine, either "directly" or "indirectly".

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

A reference to a routine may include an environment specification.
