       and recompile the procedure.
Grammar:    ERASE  name  line1
            ERASE  name  line1 : line2
            ERASE  name  line1 TO line2
       where name is the procedure name and line1 is the first
       (or only) line number to be deleted.  If line2 is given,
       then all lines from line1 through line2 are deleted.
