XV (REXX Variable to VSAM) -- REXX only

Purpose
Copy a REXX stem variable to a VSAM data set.
Usage notes
Each variable is copied, starting with stem.1 and finishing with stem.nnn, where nnn is the value of stem.0.

For example, if stem is VARXX. and VARXX.0 has the value 3, the variables VARXX.1, VARXX.2, and VARXX.3 are copied to a VSAM data set.

This procedure is available only from a REXX procedure.
