What I'm saying is that I am using protos but not specifying EXTPROC.  That
way I can define which parms go it.

It would be like prototyping QCMDEXC and having to pass in the command
length.  You don't have to.  This value can be determined inside the
procedure.  So, you only pass the command string, not the length.  It's the
difference of

CALLP           #QCmdExc(Command)
and
CALLP           #QCmdExc(Command:Length)

Now, this is only one parameter, but when you get into the HTTP APIs, there
are more.  Instead of passing 6 or so into QtmhRdStin, you only need to pass
two.
