Only for record (sic!), because I just had a problem where this would have been quite useful: In R4, each record (i.e. dbCommon) should have an input link targeting the PROC field.

Standard application: a potentially large number of records needs to be scanned according to what happens at some central place.

Can that requirement not be implemented already in V3 using this?

    SCAN=Event
    EVNT=<some number>
    Use an Event record to generate that numbered soft event.

If the records to be processed are spread across multiple IOCs, you need to have one Event record in each IOC.
