Hi John,

You could use an externally defined data structures to accomplish
this.  Something like:

PROGRAM1:

FCUSTMAS   IF   E           K DISK
D mystruct      E DS                  EXTNAME(CUSTMAS)
C                   read      CUSTMAS                                1
c                   call      'PROGRAM2'
c                   parm                    mystruct
c                   eval      *INLR = *ON

PROGRAM2:

D mystruct      E DS                  EXTNAME(CUSTMAS)
D                                     BASED(p_Parm)
D p_parm          S               *
C     *entry        plist
c                   parm                    blah              1
c                   eval      p_parm = %addr(blah)
c                   dsply                   CustNo
c                   eval      *INLR = *On


Hope that helps...
