Generates application code from a template.


GENERATE zimprog [ (parm)|string ]




The name of an application document that contains an application program template.




An expression whose value is to be passed to zimprog. Multiple parameters must be separated from one another by commas.




A string that is passed to zimprog if zimprog is a macro program.



The commands in zimprog are executed interactively. When an opening program template delimiter (<<) is encountered, execution is suspended, and the subsequent lines are written (after macro substitutions) to the current output. This process ends when a closing program template delimiter (>>) is encountered alone on a line.
