What happened to 'local'?


I just installed 2.3.0, and I realized that the gp function 'local'

I checked the source code, to make sure it's not a problem with the
fedora package, but I could not find it.

I searched the mailing lists, but I couldn't find any mention of the
function, which is still mentioned in the manual.

It appears to me that 'local' is still needed:

? a=1
%23 = 1
? test(x)={a=x+1;return(a)}
? test(12)
%24 = 13
? a
%25 = 13

Was I looking in the wrong place, there's something I don't understand,
or the function was just left out?
