Nesting run time parms?

Postby Balr14 » Fri Oct 01, 2010 10:14 pm

I'm running a test shell that uses a parm to identify the application program to be executed. But, that application program also requires a parm and I don't know how to specify that. How do I get the parm to the program being driven by a parm?

You would have to pass it to your shell program which would then pass it on to the program being tested.
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.

When I've done this type of stuff, I've always done something like

// EXEC PGM=SHELL,PARM='program-name/parms for program'
