Linking Programs

When your application is working you might want to make it independent of your COBOL development system so you can distribute it for use on other binary-compatible machines. To do this you use the UNIX system linker.

  • You can link your program only if you have a C/Operating System Development System installed on your machine. This provides the system tools that the Cob utility needs such as ld, the system linker.
  • You can only run your application on another system if COBOL Server and the requisite licenses are available on that system.
