Code:
myproc: proc(parm) options(main);
dcl parm char (100) var;
.
.
.
end myproc;


Code:
//STEPPLI EXEC PGM=MYPGM,PARM='/PARAMETERS'


Before the slash you can put parameters for the run-time.

FWIW, everything is in the manual, why did you not read it???

Thank You Prino.

I have a query, in the above PLI program you have declare the variable name as "parm"

dcl parm char (100) var;

as we are passing data from PARM parameter of JCL, is it mandatory to declare the name as PARM of can I give a different name.

One more thing if we are passing data from SYSIN, what name should we give to the variable that accepts the input.

//SYSIN DD *
this is input
/*

"Oh crap", as Joy Turner would say...
Code:
dcl volume area;
dcl integer float;
dcl float char;

if if = then then then = else;else else = if;


How much trouble would it have been to try this:
Code:
myproc: proc(I_am_a_dimwit) options(main);
dcl I_am_a_dimwit char (100) var;
.
.
.
end myproc;

As for SYSIN? You can treat it as a normal file, or you can treat it as SYSIN. Either way, RTFM!
