I have a pgm ProperCase to change an UPPER-CASE string to Mixed-Case.
For example, "123 ELM ST" changes to "123 Elm St"
The field that I want to pass as a parm may be different lengths for example
CUST-NAME PIC x(50).
CUST-ADDRESS-1 PIC X(30).
I have been coding as follows:
move CUST-ADDRESS-1 of CUST-FILE to ws-string
call 'ProperCase' using ws-string
move ws-string to PRINT-LINE.
I would much prefer to do something like
Move ProperCase (CUST-ADDRESS-1) to PRINT-LINE
Is this possible?
Surely not, but
My next choice, to make fewer lines of code and thus more readable code, would be to
move CUST-ADDRESS-1 to PRINT-LINE
call 'ProperCase' using PRINT-LINE
Problem is that in the pgm ProperCase, the parm is defined as very long x(1000) to accommodate a long string. But when I make this call, it wipes out everything in memory past the field that I am passing as a parm.
Any way to avoid this?
