Whenever a new INMOD routine is created, or modify an existing the new or modified routine must be compiled and linked into a shared object for use by Teradata FastLoad.
Note for UNIX operating system users: Teradata FastLoad 6.0 and later uses dynamic linking to load INMOD routines at run time. As a result, any INMOD routines created or modified under earlier versions of the utility must be recompiled and re-linked.
For procedures and examples of compiling and linking INMOD routines, see INMOD and Notify Exit Routine Examples.
