The version statement is NOT needed in the subroutines. Example:

/*-------------------------------------*/
. program thetest9
  1.     version 9
  2.     _thetest
  3. end

. program thetest10
  1.     version 10
  2.     _thetest
  3. end

. program _thetest
  1.     local pos = index("abc","c")
  2.     di as res "`pos'"
  3. end

. thetest9
3

. thetest10
Unknown function index()
r(133);
