The language used to write the source code for the method defined by this signature.

This clause is mandatory for each method signature you specify as part of a distinct UDT definition.

The valid languages for writing methods are C and C++.

  • If the method is written in C, then its language code is C.
  • If the method is written in C++, then its language code is CPP.

The language clause must be specified as either LANGUAGE C or LANGUAGE CPP even if the external method routine is supplied in object form.

If the external method object is not written in C or C++, it must be compatible with C or C++ object code.
