Compiling and building a PL/I project

Attention: You must recompile and relink your PL/I applications to use them with this Enterprise Developer release.

By default, Eclipse builds projects automatically whenever a file is saved. To turn off automatic building, select Window > Preferences > General > Workspace and clear the Build automatically check box.

Use build configurations to specify project settings that are passed to the Compiler, including pre- and post-build events, and additional library and resource files.

To configure build configurations, right-click the project in Team Developer Tree view, select Properties. Then expand the Micro Focus > Build Configurations node.

The built artefacts are selected by clicking in the PL/I Link Settings options of the build configuration and entering a value for Output type. The options are:

Single executable native library
One .dll file for the whole project.
Single executable
One .exe file for the whole project.
Single library
One .lib file for the whole project.
All executable native libraries
A .dll file for each .pli source file in the project.
All executables
An .exe file for each .pli source file in the project.
All libraries
A .lib file for each .pli source file in the project.
