When you compile your COBOL programs, you can direct any error messages to a file, which you can examine after compilation.
The compile command for capturing error output in a file is:
ccbl -e filename program-name
From the information in this file, you will probably be able to determine the cause of the problem and make the necessary
changes. If not, this file would be useful if Micro Focus SupportLine look at your problem. Here's an overview of the information
we need to know:
- We need to know your hardware and operating system.
- It's also helpful for us to know which version of the ACUCOBOL-GT compiler you are using. In case you've encountered a compiler
anomaly, a later version of the compiler may solve your problem. To determine the version you are running, type:
- We need a copy of the compile-time error file. If any message appears on your screen, we need the exact text of the message.
- Finally, if you can isolate the section of the code that is causing the problem, please send a copy of this code.
