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

RE: cblnames visual cobol 4 from command line

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.
