3 Definitions, General Syntax and Methodology

The general syntax used by this binding uses the external reference syntax (cf. ANSI X11.1–1995 section 5.1.6.3):

packagename.routinename([arguments])

The packagename specifies the routine library in which the individual routine will be found. The routinename specifies the precise routine that will be invoked. Those routines that return a value are called using the function syntax of the external reference:

S Value=$&Package.RoutineName1(arg)

Those routines that return no value are called using the DO command syntax:

DO &Package.RoutineName2(arg)

These differences are frequently seen in the C language specifications as returning an integer (int) and no return value (void). For any routine that no return value is specified, in this binding a void (no return value) is assumed.
