New IMS SQL coprocessor available with Enterprise COBOL 5.1

The following document (IMS SQL coprocessor_Oct 4.pdf) describes the new option syntax and how to code and compile programs containing IMS SQL statements. It describes additions to the version 5.1 Language Reference and Programming Guide (currently available from the COBOL library page at:
