differences+between+mainframe+cobol+and+AIX+cobol+data+type


Hi

Can anyone list the differences between data types,value ranges,sign between COBOL run in mainframes and that in AIX platform?
Simply put,lemme know the changes to be made in the data type variables when a mainframe cobol application program is run in AIX platform
Thanks in advance

Each cobol compiler should be directly compatible with mainfraime cobol.
More precisely, you should read the documentation from the cobol compiler you are using.
If you are using Microfocus Cobol on AIX, you should read the Microfocus documentation.

An alternative way could be the following : just try to compile and execulte a small program, and see if the compiler signals some errors. The errors should be relatively minor ones.
