Hi all,

I am confused by the following code.
Acutally I before saw the format like :PARM=(A,B...)
but what do the '/' and '&' mean here?
Appreciate your reply thanks.!~


Code:
//STEP010  EXEC PGM=AAAPARM,COND=(4,LT),
//           PARM=’/&SYSID,&PRDSID,&YEAR/’

'/' some kind of delimiter used in the respective program.

'&SYSID,&PRDSID,&YEAR' are 3 symbolic parmaters passed to program.
