Directives

  1. In addition to the Compiler directives which provide flagging and modify the reserved word list, the following directives may impact either the syntax or the semantics described in this section.
    • RDFPATH - specifies the location of the library for the repository files.
    • ACTUAL-PARAMS - specifies the parameters to be used in the creation of a class or interface from a parameterized class or interface

Syntax Rules

  1. If any class-name-1, delegate-name-1, enum-name-1, interface-name-2, function-prototype-name-2, intrinsic-function-name-1, property-name-1 or program-prototype-name-1 is specified more than once in the Repository paragraph, all the specifications for that name must be identical.
  2. Literal-1, literal-2, literal-3, literal-4, literal-5, literal-6 and literal-7 must be nonnumeric literals and must not be figurative constants.
  3. If the CLASS clause is specified, class-name-2, class-name-3, and interface-name-1 must be:
    1. Parameters of a containing class definition or interface definition; or
    2. Defined in the same Repository paragraph where class-name-1 is defined.
  4. If class-name-1 is specified in the USING phrase of the Class-ID paragraph of a class definition containing this Repository paragraph or in the USING phrase of the Interface-ID paragraph of an interface definition containing this Repository paragraph, the EXPANDS phrase must not be specified.

    2. If literal-7 is not specified, there must be information in the external repository for the enumeration definition literal-7.

General Rules

  1. Class-name-1 is the name of a class that may be used throughout the scope of the containing Environment Division.
  2. If the AS phrase is specified, literal-1, literal-2, literal-3, literal-5 or literal-6 is the name by which the class, interface, program, function or delegate respectively, is known to the operating environment. Literal-4 is the name known to the operating environment for a method that implements the named property. The AS phrase is required when the name of a class, interface, property, function or delegate does not follow the rules for formation of a user-defined word or when the name is case specific.
  3. Class-name-3 and interface-name-1 are actual parameters for the parameterized class referenced by class-name-2.
  4. Class-name-4 and interface-name-4 are actual parameters for the parameterized interface referenced by interface-name-3.
  5. If the EXPANDS phrase is specified in a class-specifier, a class class-name-1 is created from the parameterized class class-name-2. The number of parameters in the USING phrase of the EXPANDS phrase of the class-specifier must be the same as the number of parameters in the USING phrase of the CLASS-ID paragraph of class-name-2. The interface for class-name-1 is the interface specified for class-name-2 with the parameters of class-name-2 replaced by the parameters specified in the class-specifier.

    The class class-name-1 is created from the parameterized class class-name-2 by replacing each specification of the formal parameter by the corresponding actual parameter. This replacement is done after the processing of COPY and REPLACE statements.

  6. The compiler uses the information specified for class-name-1 together with the external repository to determine the details of the class that is to be used. The repository information for the class must be in a file whose name is the externalized name of the class with the extension rdf. If the RDFPATH directive is specified, the file must be in the specified directory; otherwise, the file must be in the local directory where the .int and .idy files will be created.
  7. Interface-name-2 is the name of an interface that may be used throughout the scope of the containing Environment Division.
  8. If the EXPANDS phrase is specified in an interface-specifier, an interface interface-name-2 is created from the parameterized interface interface-name-3. The number of parameters in the USING phrase of the EXPANDS phrase of the interface-specifier must be the same as the number of parameters in the USING phrase of the INTERFACE-ID paragraph of interface-name-3. The interface for interface-name-2 is the interface specified for interface-name-3 with the parameters of interface-name-3 replaced by the parameters specified in the interface-specifier.

    The interface interface-name-2 is created from the parameterized interface interface-name-3 by replacing each specification of the formal parameter by the corresponding actual parameter. This replacement is done after the processing of COPY and REPLACE statements.

  9. The compiler uses the information specified for interface-name-2 together with the external repository to determine the details of the interface that is to be used. The repository information for the interface must be in a file whose name is the externalized name of the interface with the extension rdf. If the RDFPATH directive is specified, the file must be in the specified directory; otherwise, the file must be in the local directory where the .int and .idy files will be created.
  10. Property-name-1 is the name of an object property that may be used throughout the scope of the containing Environment Division.
  11. Program-prototype-name-1 is the name of a program prototype that may be used throughout the scope of the containing Environment Division.
  12. Delegate-name-1 is the name of a delegate definition that may be used throughout the scope of the containing Environment Division.
  13. Enum-name-1 is the name of an enumeration definition that may be used throughout the scope of the containing Environment Division.
  14. If a prototype definition or a program definition for program-prototype-name-1 is specified previously in this compilation group, that definition is used to determine the details for activating the program identified by program-prototoype-name-1. Otherwise, the external repository is used to determine the details for activating the program with the externalized name program-prototype-name-1 and that program is activated when program-prototype-name-1 is referenced.
  15. Function-prototype-name-1 is the name of a function prototype that may be used throughout the scope of the containing Environment Division.
  16. If a prototype definition or a function definition for function-prototype-name-1 is specified previously in this compilation group, that definition is used to determine the details for activating the function identified by function-prototoype-name-1. Otherwise, the external repository is used to determine the details for activating the function with the externalized name function-prototype-name-1 and that function is activated when function-prototype-name-1 is referenced.
  17. Intrinsic-function-name-1 may be specified in a function-identifier without being preceded by the word FUNCTION.
  18. If ALL is specified in the intrinsic format of the function-specifier, it is as if each of the intrinsic-function-names defined in the topic Intrinsic Functions were specified.
