It is best to use one compound variable for all local variables of routines declared without the <PROCEDURE keyword instruction. The reason: In this case you need only the stem of this compound variable as parameter for the keyword instruction <DROP at the end of the routine to delete all local variables. Likewise, you can use this one stem to initialize your local variables all at once or to assign them all the same value at some point in the program. And, of course, if you're using unique stems for all procedures, your local variables can't interfere with your global variables (or with the local variables of other procedures).
Note: See Copy the Queue into a compound variable for a working example.
