In ISPF/TSO the commands work like this:
<the simulator starts, and I start entering subcommands:>
logon a(user001) fac(cicsprod) trace
<the simulator acknowledges a valid simulated login>
<the simulator analyses the access attempt and displays the simulated results>
<the simulator sends me back to ISPF>
To our communal sorrow, REXX doesn't handle subsystem commands, so I first tried to put the commands in the queue and then invoke TSSSIM. This is how I do it for FTP, for example, and in a way that is of course how it works with TSO. But TSSSIM apparently doesn't see the stack; I had to exit TSSSIM manually and the contents of the stack were then evaluated in ISPF.
Second attempt: With ACF2 I have to write a CLIST that invokes ACF2, then issues the commands on the fly. I tried a CLIST to do this with TSSSIM, but I got no response to the commands.
Third: I tried writing the commands to DD SYSIN. Nothing.
Fourth: In the manual it says that the batch version of TSSSIM gets its commands from DD SIM$$IN, so I wrote the commands there. Still no response from TSSSIM; it fires up well enough, but apparently doesn't see any of the commands I'm trying to present to it.
I don't expect anyone here to know how to communicate with TSSSIM specifically, but are there other obvious things I should try? Another DD name, maybe?

/* ...a 1993 Washington Post article concerning a Centreville, MD, man who received a bill from the IRS for -- I am not making this up -- $68 billion. A lot of careless taxpayers would have simply paid this bill, but this man had the presence of mind to question it, and as a result he will be eligible for parole in just 224 years. ¶ No, seriously, he got it straightened out. The Post article doesn't say exactly how; my guess is that he will be allowed to make two easy payments of $34 billion. -from "The Revenuers are Coming!" by Dave Barry */
