No, 'CODE' is not one of the options of the CONDITION Bif.  You're asking for 'Condition', since only the first letter is inspected.  That, of course, is SYNTAX.  The CODE is only available from the condition object.

The detailed identification of the error that caused a SYNTAX condition. This number is a
nonnegative number in the form nn.nnn. The integer portion is the Rexx major error number (the
same value as the RC entry). The fractional portion is a subcode that gives a precise indication of
the error that occurred.
A bug?
