I don't think Randy would do that unless he wishes death on HLA. :grin:

HLA's macros provide enough sophistication to let you do this yourself.

No, the cobol version of Break A leg would be

Select "LEG" from "BODY:LOWER", Select "HAND" From "BODY:HIGHER", Put "LARGE BAT" in "HAND", Swing "LARGE BAT" at "LEG", IMPACT "LEG" with "LARGE BAT"

Aha! So that how COBOL code looks like

I prefer the asm version of shooting you self in the foot:
You don't, unless you're forced to do it in HLL... (or taken something liek SPAX, SPUNK, SPAN or what ever they nname those synthetic deat stuff )
