#180 RXHLT/RXHLTCLR documentation error

rexxpg.pdf: the documentation to the exit number RXHLT, subfunction RXHLTCLR states "Parameters: None", which is not correct.

RXHLTCLR uses the same Parameters as the subfunction RHLTTST (except that the comment for flag rxfhhalt would need to be different):

typedef struct {
struct { / Halt flag /
unsigned rxfhhalt : 1; / Set if HALT occurred. /
} rxhlt_flags;
} RXHLTTST_PARM;

The explanation text underneath could read:

If the exit handler sets rxfhhalt to TRUE, the HALT condition will be cleared in the Rexx program.

    This really is a correct statement for this exit. While it does pass out a structure, since that is a requirement of the exits, no information pertinent to the function is passed out and altering the flags has not effect.
