CLI routines are used by application programs when:

  • No preprocessor exists for the application language.
  • Facilities not supported by the preprocessors are required.
  • Standard OS linkage conventions are required by the CLI routines.
  • The application has severe performance or memory constraints.

CLI routines reside in the CLIv2 library.
