The easiest way to provide COBOL services to a .NET assembly is to use one of ACUCOBOL-GT's .NET compiler options to generate managed objects that can call your ACUCOBOL-GT program. These objects are compiled in Microsoft Intermediate Language (MSIL), so they can be managed directly by the .NET Common Language Runtime (CLR). They are MSIL stubs capable of calling the ACUCOBOL-GT run time and executing your .acu object.
There are two compiler options that you can use for this purpose:
|--netexe||Generates a .NET Version 2.0-compatible executable file from your COBOL source.|
|--netdll||Generates a .NET Version 2.0-compatible dynamic link library (DLL) file from your COBOL source.|
