Parameters may be assigned values on the command line. This is useful for running tasks in batch mode and in procedures, and for specifying the values of parameters that would otherwise be defaulted. A command-line parameter will prevent prompting for that parameter unless there is an error with the given value, say giving an alphabetic character string where a floating-point value is demanded.
There are two ways in which parameter values may be given on the command line: by keyword and by position. The two forms may be mixed with care. The parser looks for positional parameters then keywords, so you can have some positional values followed by keyword values. See some of the examples presented in the application specifications.
