3.00 3.00a MS-DOS

The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft COBOL for MS-DOS, versions 3.0 and 3.0a

Summary: Page 30 of the “Microsoft COBOL Utilities” manual for Versions 3.0 and 3.0a shows that the PACKCODE option can be abbreviated as PAC. When this option is used in COBOL 3.0 or 3.0a, the linker issues the following error message: LINK : fatal error L1001 : PAC : option name ambiguous. The command “LINK /PACKC COBPROG;” will be accepted, but any shorter form of PACKCODE gives the error L1001.
