inputmsg is to pass input data to a terminal based program, that normally
expects to RECEIVE input from terminal

Then I guess the answer is "yes", once you "recieve" the data......

I've never used to pass working storage data, but suppose you could, if
the 'receiver' program is aware.

Normally, I've used in front'-ending applications, like outside vendor
products.

INPUTMSG is for passing parameters - it is not meant for long-term storage.

Think of it like the COMMAREA that you pass on a LINK statement.

Example:

05 WS-INPUTMSG PIC X(11) VALUE "CESF LOGOFF".

EXEC CICS
RETURN TRANSID("CESF")
INPUTMSG(WS-INPUTMSG)
INPUTMSGLEN(LENGTH OF WS-INPUTMSG)
IMMEDIATE
END-EXEC

yes, simliar to passing commarea storage, but is considered
terminal input to the receiving program.
