The Question is:
How can I use or implement sockets in my VAX/VMS COBOL program? I need source
The Answer is :
The OpenVMS Wizard is not aware of a supported way to use the TCP/IP
or UDP/IP socket API from any language other than C or C++. This
means you can write, link to, and use C or C++ code in a mixed-language
application, or you can write, link to, and use the $qio interface from
COBOL or other application programming language.
For available source code examples and support articles, please
review the AskQ website referenced in the FAQ.
For C examples, please see TCPIP$EXAMPLES: (TCP/IP Services V5 and
later) or UCX$EXAMPLES: (prior to V5.0).
For COBOL system service call examples, please see information here,
AskQ, and the COBOL documentation.
For a description of the TCP/IP Services $qio programming interface,
please see the TCP/IP Services documentation set.
