Document your user-defined PDM options

User-defined PDM option: Put a comment at the beginning of the command to document its intended function.

When creating or modifying a user-defined PDM option, you can put a comment at the beginning of the command to document its intended function.

For example: /* Call program from library */ CALL PGM(&O/&N)

While this is a simplistic example, it gives you the basic idea.

Some user-defined PDM options can become complex, especially when calling a program to perform the operations and acting upon the parms (option parms like &O, &N, etc) passed in.

Prompting the command during creation of the user-defined PDM option just ignores the /* comment */.
