Base Class Library


A CharacterArray stores strings as objects, and is a convenient way to handle text of any length. A CharacterArray also provides methods for manipulating and searching itself.

The CobolPicx class provides the same functionality as CharacterArray, but CharacterArrays are more efficient and easier to use when creating instances. This is because a CharacterArray stores the string as indexed data, and you don't need to clone the CharacterArray class to the length of data you want to store. Use instances of Cobolpicx only when it is important that the instance data comprises just the string.

See class cobolpicx.
