QMF batch - maximum parameter length from SYSTSIN card

Postby twolights56 » Thu Mar 14, 2019 10:01 pm

I have been running QMF in batch mode via the JCL for many years.
I can even successfully pass parameters through the //SYSTSIN card that are
received and handled as QMF variables... as the following exemplifies:

//RUNQMF30.SYSTSIN DD *
ISPSTART PGM(DSQQMFE) -
PARM(S=GAD0,M=B,I=abcd.QMF_TB_MEF_P1 -
(&&US='value01',&&S1='111111111',&&S2='222222222',&&S3='333333333'))

(where &&US, &&S1, &&S2, and &&S3 are parameters that are being passed to the QMF procedure abcd.QMF_TB_MEF_P1
Regretfully, I find that the amount of parameters that one can pass in the //SYSTSIN card is
limited to 98 bytes (give or take two bytes) - similar to the JCL limit that can be passed in the
JCL PARM statement. Can anyone suggest a way around this ?

thank-you kindly
