The Boomerang client does not require any special setup or configuration. Once you have set up and configured your Boomerang server, use the Boomerang client to enter and carry out your remote preprocessing commands. Boomerang sends the specified source file to the server and invokes the preprocessor using the alias file that you created on the server. The preprocessed output file and status are then returned to the ACUCOBOL-GT compiler. If the precompile was successful, normal compiling occurs. If the precompile was not successful, the compiler will display the status.
