SYSPARM is meant for passing small amounts of control information. Either
put the string in a file and use sysparm to pass the name of the file, or
put the string in an environment variable and use %SYSGET to obtain the
value of that variable.

Subject: command line too long
I have a UNIX script that is calling a SAS program in V8.2 where I am
told (and I believe, having tested this) that the command line limit
is 2000 charcters. I was hoping that there was an option to increase
this, or some other workaround, other than me re-jigging the way I do
The reason the command line is so long is because there is a long
string being passed to the program through the -sysparms command line
I would appreciate any suggestions.
