Truncating Names of Absolute Elements

If you are verifying ECL files for an application in which absolute element names differ from program IDs, you can tell the parser to truncate suffixes in the names of Cobol programs called by ECL. Select Truncate Names of Absolute Elements on the Workspace Verification options Settings tab for the ECL file.

If a Cobol program named CAP13MS.cob, for example, defines the entry point CAP13M, and an ECL program named CAP13M.ecl executes an absolute element called CAP13MA, then setting this option causes the parser to create a reference to the entry point CAP13M rather than CAP13MA.
