COBOL Pointer Usage

 

COBOL Pointer usage references.
 > Defining COBOL Pointers - ILE COBOL
You can define COBOL POINTERS in two ways: A COBOL POINTER to a data item. This COBOL POINTER is defined with the USAGE POINTER clause. The resulting data item is called a pointer data item. A COBOL POINTER to an ILE COBOL program, an ILE procedure, or a program object. This COBOL POINTER is defined with the USAGE PROCEDURE-POINTER clause. The resulting data item is called a procedure-pointer data item.

 > Using COBOL Pointers - ILE COBOL
You can use a COBOL POINTER (a data item in which address values can be stored) within an ILE COBOL program when you want to pass and receive addresses of data items, ILE procedures, or program objects.

 > COBOL Procedure Pointer - COBOL Examples
This suite of programs will describe how to use COBOL PROCEDURE POINTERS and external data items. The COBOL PROCEDURE POINTER will then be used to call a secondary program.
