Question:

Is CA Easytrieve a 'callable' language? If not, does CBLCNVRT utility contain functionality which will help to convert from CA Easytrieve to COBOL? 

Answer:

CA Easytrieve is not a 'callable'  language. Yes, even with release 11.6 (our latest release to date), we have the restriction that CA Easytrieve can make calls, but it is not a callable language. 

CBLCNVRT only helps to convert COBOL to CA Easytrieve, not vice versa. So, any COBOL programs calling CA Easytrieve programs will need to be rewritten in COBOL or rewrite the subroutines in CA Easytrieve.
