Which LIbrary Contains Intrinsic Functions?

Which LIbrary Contains Intrinsic Functions?

Which LIbrary Contains Intrinsic Functions?

(OP)
Micro Focus COBOL Version 3.2.46, Windows XP Pro

I tried to use intrinsic function INTEGER_OF_DATE, and the run time got a load failure on that function. It seems to me that I had that information at one time, but I cannot find it now.

RE: Which LIbrary Contains Intrinsic Functions?

I don't have MicroFocus COBOL available, but IBM Enterprise COBOL mentions:
"The DATE-OF-INTEGER function converts a date in the Gregorian calendar from integer date form to standard date form (YYYYMMDD)."
and
"The INTEGER-OF-DAY function converts a date in the Gregorian calendar from Julian date form (YYYYDDD) to integer date form."

When you used this previously, was it a standard function or a a custom/site-specific function?


RE: Which LIbrary Contains Intrinsic Functions?

Thu function's name isn't INTEGER_OF_DATE but INTEGER-OF-DATE

Thahks. I'm so used to the built-in subprograms having underscores, I just automatically use them. I see that the intrinsic functions use hyphens. Thanks.
