COMPONENT/ENTRY POINT
COMPONENT/ENTRY POINT COMPONENT DESCRIPTION VARIABLES
$$HLNEXT(.HLMSTATE,.SEG)
This API is NOT to be used in the development of a
new messaging application.  It is provided for messaging applications that
were developed prior to HLO where stepping through a message was accomplished
by executing HLNEXT.

The new function $$HLNEXT is used to step through the segments of a message
stored in the new HLO data structures.  However, for batch messages, it does
not tranverse from one message to the next as executing HLNEXT does.
VARIABLES TYPE VARIABLES DESCRIPTION
HLMSTATE Both
This array is used by the HL7 package to track the
current position in the message.  The application MUST NOT touch it.
SEG Output
The segment is returned in this array.
$$HLNEXT Output
The function returns 1 on success, 0 if there are no
more segments in this message.  For batch messages, a return value of 0 does
not preclude the possibility that there are additional individual messages
within the batch.
