//             PARM=('Sys_ID')                                      <=== Assign unique 8-character ID

//SYSPRINT DD  SYSOUT=x                                          
//SYSUDUMP DD  SYSOUT=x  
//EBCUDUMP DD  SYSOUT=x                                       
//SYSIN    DD  DISP=SHR,DSN=CAI.CVDEOPTN(PARMXMS)  <=== Parameter set
