Developer notes for Command/Keyword/Value

SET

 

PARAMETER

*RETURN

Optional.

LIST

value

Optional. List name.

FRAGMENT

value

Optional. Fragment name.

SUBSET

 

Optional. See SUBSET.

 

If the return parameter is simple and requires no fragments or lists, then a SET PARAMETER(*RETURN) command will set the parameter value with the program field value.

If the parameter is a complex object, then the SET PARAMETER(*RETURN) command needs to be called to set the context of future calls to act on this parameter. Several SET FRAGMENT and SET LIST commands might need to be called to fully populate the return parameter object.

Example

 

SET PARAMETER(*RETURN)
