Hi,

I have the subprogram linkage defined with three values A B and C.

When I call the program, I call using only A and B. Will this work fine as long as I dont refer to C in subprogram or will this not compile at all???

Regards,
Sumesh

Sorry,

The question is as follows -

I have A B and C in called program LINKAGE and I call it using A B C and a fourth parameter D.

What will be the output in the above case.

Regards,
Sumesh

Since your subprogram has no way of identifying the extra parameter(s), there is no way the subprogram can use it(them).

Why didn't you just test this (10 minutes would have done it)?
