Building a project with only copybooks

Building a project with only copybooks


REvolve won't build a project with only imports, i.e. copybooks, control cards or procs.  Would like to have a project of just copybooks.


A script was created to allow a user to add all copybooks to  a project, they will be in NOT LOADED status.  This script is run from Tools/Shell and will come back with a pop up box requesting a path for the file - unusecpy.cbl - once this is given and OK is pressed, the script will create the cobol file and then parse the component.  This will enable all the copybooks to be loaded to the project.

Attached is the script for this use.  Save the script to a location that is used for scripts, i.e. tps\scripts\.

In tools\shell type:


within the popup box type the path for the cobol file (must be a path that already exists)


the project will parse this new component and load all the copybooks.
