IGYCRCTL is what I have used for years to invoke Cobol-II.
But according to publib.boulder.ibm.com, it invokes E-Cobol.
How does one write compile JCL to invoke E-COBOL ?

hy joemvcnj,

IGYCRCTL is the main entry for the compiler program,
therefore it will not change for compatibility reasons.
you just have to give the correct loadlibrary with
the needed compiler version by your steplib.
if you give the loadlibrary with vs cobol ii, you
will have the vs cobol ii compiler. if you give
the loadlibrary with enterprise cobol, then.... ok?
It is really just this simple.

just note to customize the different cobol versions
to get the same behaviour... cobol options might change.

public.bolder is right in this case:
vs cobol ii is running out, use the new le conform cobol compilers
instead, the sooner or later you are forced to change this.
