32- and 64-Bit Code Generation

When compiling with the DIALECT"ACU" directive, the Compiler generates intermediate code that is bit independent. By using ccbl, you can specify 32 or 64-bit intermediate code.

When compiling for generated code you must specify 32 or 64-bit. Visual COBOL is bit-specific and does not support cross-bit generation.

ccbl is sensitive to the current COBMODE setting. There are also the ccbl32 and ccbl64 commands, which generate 32 or 64-bit code respectively. This is all analogous to cob.
