Parameter-descriptor-length is a four byte unsigned integer. It is processed when Request-mode is 'P' (CLIv2 builds the request parcels), ignored when 'B' (the application builds the request parcels). When the DBCAREA Varying-length-request option is 'N', Parameter-descriptor-length specifies the number of bytes in the data addressed by the DBCAREA Parameter-descriptor-pointer. When the DBCAREA Varying-length-request option is 'Y', Parameter-descriptor-length is ignored and the number of bytes is specified in the two-byte unsigned integer addressed by the Parameter-descriptor-pointer.
