Issue/Introduction

We are now using Datacom MetaCOBOL. How can we tell whether MetaCOBOL is being  used in a program source or not?

 

 

Environment

Release : 15.1

Component: Datacom Support for MetaCOBOL

Resolution

MetaCOBOL uses macros to simplify coding and the source has to be processed by the MetaCOBOL Translator to convert the macros to COBOL source.
Programs that use MetaCOBOL to access Datacom would have the following MetaCOBOL translator statements in the source:
       *$COPY SPP
       *$COPY DLM
