Library Routine Prototypes and Compiling Programs for 64-Bit

Prototypes are provided for the COBOL library routines in this COBOL system. These help ensure that the library routines can run correctly in a 64-bit environment. Prototyping is an accepted way to ensure that the parameters provided to a library routine are correctly typed. See Using the Library Routine Type Definitions and Call Prototypes for information on how prototyping has been implemented for the library routines.
