COBOL for AIX users tend to ask what the main difference is between the COBOL for AIX, V5.1 Runtime and prior runtimes.
The main difference is that starting with COBOL for AIX, V5.1, the runtime is no longer re-distributable with user applications.
Prior to COBOL for AIX, V5.1, users were allowed to redistribute COBOL for AIX runtime library components with a developed application.
Another difference is that, additional runtime optimizations have also been added into the COBOL for AIX, V5.1 Runtime.
