Hi,

Whenever, I have come across compile & link edit, I have read only one thing, Compile produces a object code, which is input to link edit, which transforms it into load module.

My Question, does my statement encompasses all the functionality of compile and link edit, or is there more to it.

Basically, I need a link wherein I can find more about compile & link edit.

Regards,
Tushar

Link edit (binder) resolves external references to COBOL modules, LE modules, and subroutines you've called -- the transformation into a load module isn't necessarily a straightforward process.

The DFSMS book shelf has a manual on Program Management where you can a lot of material about binding programs. The COBOL Programming Guide manual has more about the compile process.
