I've been writing PL/I for a few months, but I still don't know what is meaning of the number in dcl.

Is there any document explain that?
I can't find it in ibm4pg03_Programming_Guide.pdf

DCL
 1 GWK_ORDER,
  5 NAME CHAR(8) INIT(''),
  5 OPR CHAR(2) INIT(''),
  5 VALUE,
   10 CDH1 CHAR(12) INIT(''),
   10 CDH2 FIXED DEC(3) INIT(0),
  5 END_FLG CHAR(1) INIT('');

The Language Reference manual is where you SHOULD be looking. If you look at the V5.1 manual, try the DECLARE statement on page 160.
