XCTL : This command passes the control to the same level.Control does not return back after this command is executed.
Syntax:
EXEC CICS XCTL
PROGRAM(PGMNAME)
COMMAREA(DATA-NAME)
END-EXEC.

LINK: link transfers the control to the next lower level.Link command also expects the control to return back.
Syntax is same use link in place of XCTL. Source: CoolInterview.com
