This statement has no parameters.
The XML INITIALIZE statement opens a session with XML Extensions. The underlying XML parser is also initialized.
The execution of this statement causes the document cache to be flushed from memory.
A status value is returned in the data item XML-data-group, which is defined in the copybook, lixmldef.cpy. Errors can occur if the Visual COBOL runtime system is incompatible, or the underlying XML parser initialization fails. It is not considered an error to execute an XML INTIALIZE statement when XML Extensions has already been initialized and not terminated.
