Answer / phils

If you include a parameter string/Dataset in the JCL SYSIN
DD statement then this can be retrieved by an assembler
program via code such as...

OPEN SYSIN

GET SYSIN,WS_PARAM

CLOSE SYSIN

Obviously if there are multiple parameters defined then the
get statement would be in a loop and the contents would have
to be stored in separate working storage fields
