Well I found out by accident last week that CL can call itself.

I had this new RPG program INVHIEA which repopulates work file IEA
(Items which are Engineeringly Active) which I need to help identify bogus 
costs on items which have no activity & came into existance through past 
errors.

I had intended to write a tiny CL program INVHIEAC to call the RPG program 
but by mistake my CL program called INVHIEAC

el typo struck me & I did not notice in my desk checking
it compiled & did not count that as an error
then when testing, it ran for a while, then failed with a 70 page joblog, and 
when I tried it interactive it signed off the work station
the failure was that it nested itself too deep - I did not figure the math 
but I figured it called itself several thousand times before I hit the max.
