This variable allows you to disable ACUCOBOL-GT's built-in transaction management system. When NO_TRANSACTIONS is set to 1 (on, true, yes), all calls to ACUCOBOL-GT's built-in transaction management system return without doing any work. This affects all file systems in use. The value of NO_TRANSACTIONS is checked once, the first time a BEGIN, COMMIT, or ROLLBACK is attempted and it is not checked again. Therefore, although the variable can be set in the program, the effective setting cannot be changed after the first transaction management action has been attempted. The default value is 0 (off, false, no), meaning that the built-in transaction management facility is enabled.
