Set COBOL Processing Options panel (option 0.5.2)

The COBOL Processing Options control various options used by the COBOL compiler to generate templates from your COBOL copybooks.

Additional SYSLIB data sets
A concatenation of up to 10 SYSLIB data sets may be entered, these data sets are searched in the order specified for COPY members for the compilation.
Note: CA-Panvalet libraries cannot be specified as additional SYSLIB sets. Further, if a CA-Panvalet Library is the main copybook library, then no additional SYSLIB data sets may be specified.
COBOL Replacing Options
“From” and “To” pseudo-text character strings for the REPLACE compiler-directing statement.
COBOL Compiler Options
Compiler options to be used when compiling a COBOL copybook into a template:
Instructs Z Data Tools to use the DBCS compiler option.
Decimal-point is comma
Uses the "Decimal-point is comma" SPECIAL-NAMES paragraph when compiling COBOL copybooks.
Uses the Arith(extend) COBOL compile option when compiling COBOL copybooks.
Mixed case field names
Retains the original case of the field name as coded in the COBOL copybook.
Additional options
Additional COBOL compiler options which are added via the CBL statement when a COBOL compile is run to build or update a template. These options are validated during the compile process. To avoid compile errors ensure that the syntax is correct and that any additional data sets required by these options are allocated before invoking HFM.
Maximum Return Code
Sets the maximum warning/error code accepted from the compiler, when compiling a copybook. Any code higher than specified causes Z Data Tools to display a pop-up panel, in which you can review the compilation and decide about future processing.
