Yowsie, this is the first I've heard of this: Jim Sloan was the
creator of S/38 CL? I know he was on the development team with IBM at
the inception of "FS (Future System)" which became S/38, but . . .

Is there coroboration for this claim?

For any grammatic/spelling errors, there is no excuse.

Jim Sloan's book, CL Tips& Techniques, has a whole section on
trapping. Jim, by the way, for those that don't know is the father
of CL and the author of TAATOOLS; so he probably has a good idea of
what he's talking about.
