In short, you are executing a proc named ISPFPRC1.

Within that proc there is a step called ISPF. The 'PARM.ISPF=' is passing a parm to the program being executed by that step. It would be the same as if you ran 'ISPF EXEC PGM=xxxxx,PARM='

Also within the proc, there is a SYMBOLIC PARAMETER named 'PREFP', you sill see it as &PREFP in the proc. Wherever it appears, it will be replaced by 'ISP'.

Old-time, Ed.

"Overriding statements can appear in any order when they explicitly specify the step that is being overridden. Added statements can appear in any order when they specify the step explicitly"

Yep, you're right. I didn't even know the rule changed.

Been burned by it so much it's a habit now.
