The static run-time system and the single-threaded run-time system on Windows are no longer required and they are not shipped
Visual COBOL. Applications built with
Visual COBOL are now linked to the shared or dynamic run-time systems.
On UNIX, you can link to the single-threaded or multi-threaded shared or dynamic run-time system.
Linking from the command line
You can link applications from the
Visual COBOL command prompt with the
cblnames commands. For example, to produce an
.exe file, use:
To compile and link your code to produce a
.dll file, use:
cbllink -d myprogram.cbl
With these commands, the single-threaded and static-linking options are automatically mapped onto the multi-threaded and shared
run-time systems respectively.
Linking from the IDE
To specify what to link:
Link and specify your link settings.
