Reply with quote

Hi all,

Is it possible to pass a stem variable as an argument to the called program?

Say I have a code like this.

Code:
/*REXX*/
DO I = 1 TO 10
  IN.I = I
END


I need to pass this stem IN. to another program called from here.

Is this possible?

Regards,
Ursvmg

I tried passing like this.

Code:
/*REXX*/
DO I = 1 TO 10
  IN.I = I
END
CALL TEMP_PGM IN.


TEMP_PGM:
Code:
/*REXX*/
ARG IN1.
DO J = 1 TO 10
  SAY IN1.J
END


I'm getting only blanks in the output.

Regards,
Ursvmg

It is not possible with standard REXX. If you need to do something like this, you'll have to resort to QUEUEing, PUSHing or EXECIO.
