Links your program with the shared run-time system using dynamic binding.



Indicates the run-time system to bind to and is :

  • M - to bind the multi-threaded run-time system

Limits dynamic binding to the current release of the run-time system. If you do not specify this parameter the executable can bind with current and future versions of your COBOL run-time system.

The actual run-time system chosen is determined by a run-time launch configuration file, settings specified during COBOL Server installation, the presence of the run-time system in the same directory as the application executable, or the run-time system being on the system PATH.

This form of linking should be used on any application that is deployed using COBOL Server.
