Abstract

A methodology for passing elements of a REXX stem variable to an interface program is disclosed. This methodology allows the REXX application exec to reference primary and secondary elements of the stem variable by customizable descriptive names without modifying the interface program. The interface program acts upon the primary elements of the stem variable as defined by their position in the stem variable using a single numeric index.
