Hi,
I think that you know the Linkage Section is a section which you just introduce data structures, fields, pointers and etc to your program and they don't get any storage themselves, instead they are used to map preallocated storage which were allocated outside or inside of the program so you need to know the address of the preallocated storage in the program.
with this introduction you must code some 01 level structure in the linkage section of the program and consequently use the following:
Set address of A to B
which A is the 01 level structure and B is a pointer to the storage which you are going to use it in your program.B could be Address of some other structure in your program or another linkage section field which has been made available to the program through the same procedure.
