Anonymous COBOL data structures

XML Extensions now supports the use of an anonymous COBOL data structure when exporting and importing documents. An anonymous data structure is any data area that is the same size or larger than the data structure indicated by the ModelFileName#DataName parameter of various XML Extensions statements. This means that exporting or importing can be done to Linkage Section data items that are based on either arguments passed to a called program or a pointer using the SET statement (for example, into allocated memory). Importing and exporting can also occur with data items having the external attribute. (An external attribute is the attribute of a data item obtained by specification of the EXTERNAL clause in the data description entry of the data item or of a data item to which the subject data item is subordinate.)
