Question:

For COBOL programs compiled to be used with CA InterTest CICS, are the compile options TEST, SEPARATE, OPTIMIZE, and HOOK valid?

 

Answer:

OPTIMIZE is not compatible with CA InterTest CICS.  It is recommended that one use non-optimized code with all debug products. 

For the other 3 options, TEST, SEPARATE, and HOOK there is nothing in the documentation that prohibits them.

For compiler options TEST, SEPARATE, and HOOK:  these options should not be a problem as long as you also use the compiler options which we require.  And as stated before, OPTIMIZE is a definite no.
