Run-pointer is a four-byte field that specifies a particular set of services to be used by the session.
|In this language...||The variable name for Run-pointer is...|
|This routine...||Does this for Run-pointer...|
|Run-pointer is used by...||To...|
If Run-pointer is zero, DBCHCL uses DBC/SQL as the default value.
The application may specify the value of Run-pointer.
To do so, the program must build a run string or a Connect parcel body, and set Run-pointer one of the following addresses:
- the run string for the Run parcel
- the connect parcel body before calling DBCHCL for the Connect function
DBC/SQL is an allowed value. Run string is not case-sensitive.
|If Varying-length-request is...||Then Run-pointer is the address of the...|
|N||beginning of the run string.|
|Y||two-byte length field that precedes the run string.|
