Documentation


 The EXECME EDIT MACRO determines the name of the dataset being edited and then
 invokes it as a CLIST with an "explicit" call.  For instance, if you are
 editing a file named XYZ.ABC.FLAT.FILE, EXECME will invoke it like this:

 EXEC 'XYZ.ABC.FLAT.FILE'

 No attempt is made to determine what keyword or positional parameters are
 necessary for the CLIST.  It is also important to note two things:

 1. The most recently saved version is the one which is executed.

 2. If the file you are editing has a RECFM with carriage control in column 1,
    the TSO CLIST processor will ignore column 1 data during execution.
