You can emulate subroutines by either using another CL program >and calling that, but I've never liked that concept. Back in 1991, Paul Conte released CL/free which is a pre-compiler for CL programs. It provides numerous capabilities, including WHILE/UNTIL/FOR loops, subroutines, sources macro directives with conditional translation (IF DEFINED), include file support, etc. It is still available free from News/400. So anyone who REALLY NEEDS it has been able to do it for 8 years. I would rather see it in the base compiler though.
