Step 7—Update binder procedure to use the current TBLBASE API

The your.prefix.LOAD library contains aliases (see Note 2) for prior tableBASE interfaces. These interfaces have been replaced but the aliases are retained for compatibility. Although the tableBASE interface module was renamed to DK1TCALL in Version 6, the TBLBASE alias is the standard interface name.

If you are upgrading from an earlier version of tableBASE and your applications called these earlier versions of the tableBASE interface programs, either statically or dynamically, they will continue to work without having to recompile or relink your applications.

Aliases MAINEXEC for TBEXEC, TBLRT for TBACC and POWRFEAT for TBINDX are no longer supported.

If you wish to convert existing tableBASE batch applications to the TBLBASE API or to create new tableBASE applications using the TBLBASE API, then you must ensure that these applications use the following Version 7 API, and not a version in any other load library:

  •  your.prefix.LOAD

Update the binder procedure accordingly.
