The following applies to setting the value for Varying-length-request prior to making a call to DBCHCL.

If the application sets Varying-length-request to... Then the ...
Y Request-length field is ignored and the Request-pointer must point to the two-byte area containing the length of the request string, which is followed by the actual request string.
N application must supply the length information separately from the request string, in Request-length. See Varying-length-request.
