Hi,

I have this rexx program to get and display the input.

Code:
/* REXX */                       
ADDRESS ISREDIT "MACRO NOPROCESS"
PARSE ARG INPUT                 
SAY 'THIS IS MY INPUT:' INPUT   
RETURN                           


I'm confused as to why when I invoke the program using:
Code:
TSO MYPROG myInput

Output:
THIS IS MY INPUT: myInput
***                     


But when invoke without the TSO:

Code:
MYPROG myInput

Output:
THIS IS MY INPUT:
***             


Can help me point what am I missing to get the same results as with the TSO prefix.

Possibly something to do with it saying it is a macro but you are not invoking it as a macro.

You put TSO in front then that is a 'Command' and Not a Macro.

As you have specified
Code:
'ADDRESS ISREDIT "MACRO NOPROCESS"'
that makes it a Macro.

If you need to pass argument to an edit macro then you do:
Code:
'ADDRESS ISREDIT "MACRO (ARG1, ARG2) NOPROCESS"'


You don't put TSO infront of an edit macro.

Unless you know what your doing, and as far as the TS is concerned, he's obviously totally clueless when it comes to that.
