cblnames visual cobol 4 from command line

We have migrated from netexpress for Windows to visual cobol 4.

I need to use cblnames from command line . Where can I find the technical documentation?

In the previous environment the command used was:

cblnames -V -FM -DUSFHINIA.def @USFHINIA.NAM

  • cblnames.exe is still provided in Visual COBOL. It resides in the product bin folder.

    It is not documented as it is not meant to be used directly as a separate utility. You should instead use the cbllink.exe command which calls cblnames.exe and passes it the required parameters.

    cbllink is documented here.

    If you open up a Visual COBOL command prompt and type cblnames without any options it will provide you a list of available options along with a brief description.
