To change either the C/C++ function name or function entry point name for a function, you must use the REPLACE FUNCTION statement. You cannot use RENAME FUNCTION to rename a C/C++ function name.

When you rename a function, it retains its original C/C++ entry point name, even if you used the original function name to define that C/C++ entry point name.
