Can a CA Easytrieve for Windows application be linked as a DLL (Dynamic Load Library)?
Because CA Easytrieve for Windows applications can't be called by programs written in another programming language, it makes no sense to create a DLL from an Easytrieve source - even if the link doesn't fail.
But you can call DLLs, for instance written in C, from an Easytrieve application.
This is an excerpt with additional information in this context from the CA Easytrieve 11.6 User Guide:
Unless Visual Studio is detected as being installed on your system, in Windows, your program is converted into a P-Code file. The p-code is written to a .pco file.
Note that if Visual Studio or Visual Studio .NET is detected, you can specify that your program will result in a standard executable program (EXE extension). This can be controlled through the Program Profile Manager. See Workbench Tools and Utilities (see page 155) for more information.
The P-Code file is executed using the CA Easytrieve Report Generator interpreter (ezterp).
