2.9 Special variables

The special variables $X and $Y are nonnegative integers (see 2.7). The effect of incrementing $X and $Y past the maximum allowable value is undefined. (For a description of the cases in which the values of $X and $Y may be altered see 8.2.25 of Section 1; for a description of the type of values $X and $Y may have see 7.1.4.10 of Section 1). The value of $SYstem as provided by an implementor must conform to the requirements for a local variable subscript (see 2.3.3).
