Example code from the web:

BEGIN
ARRAY DCREC [0:0];
MESSAGE BUSTER;
QUEUE PRIMARY;
INTEGER I1;
POINTER P1;

ALLOCATE (BUSTER, 8);
BUSTER [0] := 0;
I1 := DCWRITE (BUSTER, PRIMARY); %Initialize Primary Queue
ALLOCATE (BUSTER, 9);
BUSTER [0] := 0 & 4 [47:8] & 1 [31:1] & 1 [30:1] & 1 [29:1] 
& 1 [28:1] & 1 [27:1] & 1 [26:1] & 1 [25:1] & 472 [22:23];
I1 := DCWRITE (BUSTER); %Station Inquiry
RESIZE (DCREC, SIZE (BUSTER) + 10, DISCARD);
REPLACE P1:DCREC [1] BY POINTER (BUSTER [1], 8) FOR (SIZE (BUSTER) - 
1) * 6;
WHILE MYSELF.TASKVALUE = 0 DO
  DISPLAY ("HELLO WORLD"); %Duh
END.
