Syntax

Read syntax diagramSkip visual syntax diagramALOWDEFINE =YESNO
Default
ALOWDEFINE=YES
YES
Allows the specification of DEFINE options when compiling COBOL programs.
NO
Diagnoses the specification of any DEFINE options as an error.
Note:
  • ALOWDEFINE cannot be overridden at compile time because it cannot be included in the PROCESS (or CBL) statement.
  • If your installation requirements do not allow DEFINE compiler options to be specified in a source program, specify ALOWDEFINE=NO.
