    • (1) compound declarations, "integer i, j;"
    • (2) declaration initialization, "integer i=1;"
    • (3) Brackets for list index access, "l[5]=5;"
    • (4) a pragma which offers synonyms for functions without the "ll" and/or their C or Javascript short common names, if any;

    • (6) long integers.
