I think of these.

Code:
PUT LIST(PPRIRELX);
PUT SKIP LIST(PPRIRELX);

I recommend the PUT DATA statement (and for other uses GET DATA).

It will output <varname>=<value>, so it's labeled for you. This is a great PL/I feature.

I have used the GET DATA for non-specified-order input - any order, and very readable if your varnames are meaningful.
