I just ran into a problem that had me stumped for a while ... I was
calling a procedure via a ProgramCallDocument ... but when the RPG was
invoked on the host, there was garbage in the parms.

There was no special translation going on ... but the data was total
gibberish (even though that's my family language).

Turns out the parameters in the procedure were specified to be passed by
VALUE ... which PCML can't deal with (unless the parm is int(4)).

Thus, when the code I called was invoked ... the parameter (which was
passed by reference) had a value of the address of the data (which,
obviously, would look like garbage).

I removed the 'value' modifier on the procedure parms and the program
worked like a champ.
