Transfer CFT z/OS

Transfer CFT z/OS no longer uses the SAS/C compiler (as of version 3.1.3). This results in the removal of interfaces specifically used by the SAS/C objects, such as the USERAPI module. Therefore, Transfer CFT API access is now done via a call to the DLL. Consequently, this constraint requires a slight modification to the source code; for example, you must use a Language Environment (LE) conforming Assembler.

To assist users in understanding and implementing, EXIT and API samples in Assembler, C, and COBOL are delivered with Transfer CFT version 2.7.x and higher.
