In the first directive, within a macro, LOCAL defines labels that are unique to each instance of the macro.
LOCAL localId ⟦, localId ...⟧
LOCAL labelId ⟦ [count] ⟧ ⟦:qualifiedType⟧ ⟦, labelId ⟦ [count] ⟧ ⟦qualifiedType⟧ ...⟧
In the second directive, within a procedure definition (PROC), LOCAL creates stack-based variables that exist for the duration of the procedure. The labelId may be a simple variable or an array containing count elements, where count is a constant expression.
