Understanding Parameterized Slices

For COBOL programs, you can generate parameterized slices, in which the input and output variables required by the component are organized in group-level structures. The component contains all the code required for input/output operations.

To extract a parameterized slice, select the Generate Parameterized Components option in the extraction options dialog. Note that you cannot generate a complement for a parameterized COBOL slice.

Note: For parameterized structure- and computation-based componentization of COBOL programs, you must select the Perform Program Analysis and Enable Parameterization of Components options in the project verification options.
