If a parameter requires an array of values, the series should be in brackets separated by commas or spaces. For example,
PERCENTILES - List of percentiles > [25,95.5,75]
would input three values: 25, 95.5, and 75 into the real parameter PERCENTILES. If the application is expecting an exact number of values you will be reprompted, either for all the values if you give too many, or the remaining values if you supply too few. There is one exception where you can omit the brackets--a fairly common one--and that is in response to a prompt for a one-dimensional numeric array as above.
From the shell you must escape the brackets.
% display key=yes mode=pe percentiles=\[95,5\] % display key=yes mode=pe percentiles='[95,5]' % display key=yes mode=pe percentiles="[95,5]"
All the above do this. Single quotes have the advantage that you can protect all the metacharacters that lie between the quotes, so you don't need to escape each metacharacter.
Arrays of parameter values should appear in nested brackets. For example,
CVALUE - Component values > [[2,3],[5,4],[7,1]]
supplies the values for a 2
3-element parameter array, where
element (1,3) has value 7.
