Hi frnd,
Load module is nothing but as an executable file of the main program. Once ur code is being compiled then it relates various system and user defined modules. so inorder to refer that and to execute the program at the runtime we need this load module.

spriya,
where are your cobol programs? if they are in datasets, then you can use file-aid or ISPF 3.13 to compare.

Hi spriya,

Load module is the executable format of the Source code with all subprograms, external refernces included..

Source code on COMPILATION gives an o/p as Object module
Object module when link edited(all subprograms,external pgms,call..will be included )
gives an o/p of LOAD MODULE.

To be simple the executable format of Source code


Thanks & Regards

Nirmal

Hi Spriya,

Comparing of COBOL programs can be done by using two options in ISPF

1) 3.12 (Super C)
2) 3.13 (SuperCE)

In 3.13 (extended) version we compare certain Column also...

Let me know if this is sufficient..

Thanks & Regards

Nirmal

Hi priya,

thats true as posted by other members that u can use the 3.13 or 3.14 option. bt i will give u another method also to use it

1. open the Dataset containing the prg as member in edit or view mode
2. On the command line , issue comp 'your.second.comparison.dsn'
3. if u want only the changes to be listed then type COMP after that .

eg----- comp 'your.second.comparison.dsn' comp
or
comp 'your.second.comparison.dsn' exc

check and then reply
