Hi,

This defines the “local data area”. The local data area is an area of storage allocated to a job. You can see the contents of the *LDA by using DSPDTAARA *LDA, you can also change the *LDA using CHGDTAARA.

This used to be a popular way of passing data and parameters between programs on the System/36.

Regards,

Martin Gilbert.
