Actually, that manual is ancient, applying to the 1990 release of a
compiler that first shipped around 1970, and which was superseded by
an entirely new compiler several years ago. However, the new compiler
seems to use the same semantics.


Until that new compiler, IBM pretty much entirely ignored ANSI PL/I,
which is semantically very incompatible with IBM's original definition
of the language.
