Argument Association

Arguments are the values passed to and from functions and subroutines through calling program argument lists.

Execution of a procedure reference establishes argument association between an actual argument and its corresponding dummy argument. The name of a dummy argument can be different from the name of its associated actual argument (if any).

When the procedure completes execution, the argument association is terminated.
