Hi,

I am trying to call a PL/1 program from REXX.

My PLI programs is like :

Code:

SUBPGM:PROC (ABC);       
    DCL ABC CHAR(10);     
END SUBPGM;               


I compiled and called it as follows from REXX ; but I am getting S0C 4.

Code:

ADDRESS TSO "CALL 'SYS1.MYPDS.NCAL(SUBPGM)' '/ABC'"     


Please advise.

Hi Team,

Got it worked when I changed NCAL lib to LOAD lib and changed my program as follows :

Code:

SUBPGM:PROC (ABC) OPTIONS(MAIN NOEXECOPS); 
    DCL ABC CHAR(10);                       
    PUT SKIP LIST('HELLO');                 
END SUBPGM;

Hi Team,

The variable value is not getting received properly. Please advise.

I am getting blank in the receiving program in PL1

Code:


ABC = 'hello'
ADDRESS TSO "CALL 'SYS1.MYPDS.LOADLIB(SUBPGM)' '/ABC'"

  1. ALLOCATE SYSPRINT to the terminal in your exec.
  2. The parameter to a MAIN procedure must be declared as CHAR (100) VAR;
  3. The slash (to separate run-time from application parameters) is not necessary in the TSO environment.
  4. You recognize that you are passing the literal "ABC", not the variable ABC?

Similarly, you are PUTting the literal when you should be putting the variable.

Actually it is, unless, as the TS has done, you use the NOEXECOPS option. This option can also be used for BATCH programs, if they never require any run-time parameters.

Hello Team,

Many thanks for all your comments .

I got it worked by changing the CHAR(100) VARYING.

One more doubt. I am calling an IMS program from the REXX whose proc statement is as follows :

Code:
 
DLITPLI: PROC(DVO911_PCB_PTR) OPTIONS(MAIN) REORDER;     


will it be possible to call the above proc from a REXX ? Because can I pass other parms other than the PCBs in the DLITPLI proc ?
