Provide a CL Command Parameter Option for Required when INTERACTIVE
some CL command parameters can be designated as MIN(1) which makes them have a value before the command may be run. We need a way to set parameters to REQUIRED when they are run interactively vs batch. Add a RQD parameter (or similar) to PARM statements in CMD definition source so that RQD(*INTERACT) could be used to override the other parameters settings (such as MIN(1) when run interactively vs batch. See Use Case for example.
As an example: The IBM RSTOBJ command has a RSTLIB parameter. By default that parameter is RSTLIB(*SAVLIB). Which is fine. However, when run interactively, we want the end-user to be required to enter an explicit value for RSTLIB so they don't accidentally overlay existing production data. If there were an option of RQD(*INTERACT) on the PARM/ELEM/QUAL statements that behaved like MIN(1) when Interactive and like MIN(0) when not interactive that would be great. This should also be an option on CHGCMDDFT so we can change existing command parameters.
