We would like to reduce the size of a very large PL/I Load Module without recompiling the code. It is known that some called modules are no longer used. Is it possible to relink the program excluding these modules? I thought that it might be possible using something like NOCALL or NEVERCALL in the Linkage Editor (or Binder), but I cannot find a manual.

recompiling from source is the safest thing , from any point of view you look at it

auditors might not be happy to have a load that does not match the source

Hi if you use the replace option of the linkage editor/binder you should be able to achieve what you want. Input should look something like this

REPLACE xxxx
INCLUDE INPUTDD(LOADMOD)
NAME LOADMOD(R)

this should remove CSECT XXXX from the load module
