5 External routine calls

When the external routine called is not within the current default M environment, all variables should be assumed to be scalars (i.e., a refers to the value associated with a, but does not refer to any descendants a might have such as a(1), etc.). No prohibition against non-scalar extensions should be inferred, only that they may not be portable. It should be noted that no all-encompassing implied guarantee of the number of routines supported by an external package exists.
