Currently, a global MONMSG can only have GOTO in the EXEC() parameter. With the addition of subroutines in CL, it would be beneficial to allow the CALLSUBR opcode in the EXEC() parameter to invoke a generic error handling routine.
Allowing this would enable us to expand the use of structured programming in CL by utilizing global/generic error handling code in our programs.
Currently, a program-level MONMSG allows only GOTO to be specified in its EXEC. Please allow CALLSUBR to be used here as well. Use Case: MYPGM: pgm (parm1 ... dcl parm1 *char (10) dcl ... monmsg CPF0000 exec(callsubr ProcessError) <CL Code> ...
