Errors in Non-COBOL Portions of an Application

Because of the success of this COBOL system at detecting COBOL protection violations, it is uncommon for COBOL applications to result in general protection violations. In contrast, other programming languages, such as C, typically make heavy use of pointers which increase the probability of causing general protection violations. If your application fails with a general protection violation and contains a part that is written in a language other than COBOL, we recommend that you closely investigate the part of the application that is not written in COBOL. In most cases, that is where the general protection violation is caused.
