How come there are not quote marks around second, fourth etc
parameters? Second if calling from command remember to pass all
parameters as actual length, not the string length.

call LEXMAILC PARM('-a' 'user@xxxxxxxx '


call LEXMAILC PARM('-a' 'user@xxxxxxxx'

I have been trying to pass a list of parameters to a CL program which
Will eventually run a Java class and pass these parameters to it.
I thought I was following the documentation for doing this correctly but I still
cannot get it to work.

Here's my declaration:

LEXMAILC:       PGM   PARM(&P1 &P2 &P3 &P4 &P5 &P6 &P7 &P8)
DCL &P1         *CHAR    2           /* LexMailc parameter #1        */
DCL &P2         *CHAR    20          /* LexMailc parameter #2        */
DCL &P3         *CHAR    2           /* LexMailc parameter #3        */
DCL &P4         *CHAR    20          /* LexMailc parameter #4        */
DCL &P5         *CHAR    2           /* LexMailc parameter #5        */
DCL &P6         *CHAR    20          /* LexMailc parameter #6        */
DCL &P7         *CHAR    2           /* LexMailc parameter #7        */
DCL &P8         *CHAR    20          /* LexMailc parameter #8        */

I am invoking this program from the command line as follows:

CALL LEXMAILC PARM('-a' user@xxxxxxxx<mailto:user@xxxxxxxx> '-r' user@xxxxxxxx<mailto:user@xxxxxxxx>  '-s'  TEST  '-m' 'This is a test')

however it fails with this message in the job log and it's not clear what I am doing wrong:

                                    Message . . . . :  -CALL PGM(LEXMAILC)
CPD0172    Diagnostic              30   02/13/12  11:10:04.309861  QCACALL      QSYS        0342     QCMD        QSYS        01C8
                                    Message . . . . :   Parameters passed on CALL do not match those required.
                                    Cause . . . . . :   The parameters passed on the CALL command do not match the
                                      parameters required by program LEXMAILC in library *LIBL. Correct program
                                      not found or correct parameters not passed. The number of parameters or the
                                      type of parameters passed on the CALL command must match those expected by
                                      the program called. Recovery  . . . :   If correct program not found, change
                                      or specify the library name on the command or in a library list. Change the
                                      CALL command and then try the command again.

Note that the correct program is being invoked because it works when I run it without parameters (and hard code those parameters in the Java class)
