You would normally use CEEDOD to determine the actual length passed, or 
you can pass the length in another parameter which may be necessary if the 
parameter is numeric, an array, or a data structure. The programmers guide 
has an example of a call to CEEDOD.  In many cases VARYING is a better 
bet. With VARYING length parms, the length is passed in the first two bytes 
of the parameter.

My procedure has a parameter with options(*varsize).  This parameter
receives the value passed in plus some extra characters like procedure

I would like to know how to avoid these extra characters appended at the
end of this parm.
