Question:

Wanting to use CBLCNVRT macro to convert COBOL copybooks:  Where is the documentation on this located?

Answer:

Members CBLCNVRT and CBLCNVRD (doc on CBLCNVRT) are located in the CBAAMAC library of the CA Easytrieve product.  CBLCNVRT is the actual macro to be invoked, and CBLCNVRD is the member which has all of the documentation on how to use CBLVNVRT.

CBLCNVRD also has information on how to set appropriately the COBOL PARM, depending on the release of COBOL you are running:

   COBOL {VS|II|II12|II13|I122|I212|I341}

 

 

Additional Information:

CBLCNVRT converts file and field definitions from COBOL to its CA Easytrieve equivalent file and field definitions, prints a report showing the converted definitions, and writes the definitions to a file called EASYPGM.
