Pinned topic compile egl cobol very large problem

‏2013-06-04T17:09:34Z |

hello

 

I have problems compiling  a very large EGL Cobol program with RBD 8.5 on a iSeries server machine

 

It has 150,000 lines of code

 

Is there any way to config the iseries and or rbd to compile this cobol?

 

thank you

    Hi,

    Check the build option, if:

    CommentLevel = 0

    statementTrace = NO

    some others parameters that may contribute to the increased cobol source.

    Regards,

    The following things can also contribute to the compile not completing:

    - COBOL Compile options used (especially optimization)

    - What version of i5/OS you are using.

    - Other build options like:

            - SpacesZero (no produces less code, but may be needed if used before)

            - CheckIndeces (can be set to no if migrating from VAGen)

            - CheckOverflow (no produces less code, but may be needed for proper overflow checking)

    Hello Mark

     

    I havent been able to compile the large cobol on the iseries today.

     

    the Software version of the iseries is v.5.4

    your tricks help me to reduce the source file size but..is stil too much big

     

    Any other trick?
