ENTRY Statement Restrictions

Entry points defined using the ENTRY statement can be accessed only after the main entry point (identified by Program-Id) has been called, unless the program is statically linked, or the MFENTMAP facility has been used.

A nested program cannot contain ENTRY statements.

An entry point is an alternative route into a program; an entry point is not treated as a separate program.

All program entry point names are truncated to 31 characters (so the first 31 characters of all entry point names must be unique).
