Subject: Calling variable commands from CL

I have taken the boilerplate UPS monitor program offered by IBM, modified by
"A. Borick" and further modified by myself with ideas from TAA

TAA has 4 exit programs, and I have modified the idea for my own purposes.
One problem I have run into is passing parameters. I don't want to have to
have parameters in the controlling data area. There is a program that I call
that has a parameter that will contain "BEFORE" and "AFTER".

I came up with the bright idea that I would change from "programs" to
"commands". So I modified the line, and immediately ran into the problem
that it couldn't find library &LIBRARY, and by extension, couldn't find the

Is there a way to call a command using a variable?

If not, I spoz I'll have to split the program up and have one for before and
another for after...
