No. The linkage section is a mask. A way to define the calling pgm's parameters (data) that the caller wants the called pgm to use.

Therefore, the linkage section logically doesn't contain data (so far as the called pgm is concerned) until the caller executes the called pgm. Remember when you reference the linkage section, you are using data that resides in the calling pgm.

HTH, Jack.
