Hi..
Am new to Cobol programming and in my project trying to send a Character pointer from C program to Cobol.

LINKAGE SECTION.
01 MYPOINTER USAGE IS POINTER.
01 MYCHAR-POINTER.
05 MYCHARS PIC X(20).

PROCEDURE DIVISION USING MYPOINTER,MYCHAR-POINTER.
SET ADDRESS OF MYCHAR-POINTER TO MYPOINTER

also tried

SET ADDRESS OF MYPOINTER TO MYCHAR-POINTER .. but no luck Crying or Very sad

Cobol module will get Pointer in Linkage section and tries to assign it to a group Item. And i also tried to display the pointer as such but i see only some random numbers.

Am getting SOC4 abend while trying to Set the address.

Could you pls throw some light on this pointer handling in cobol.
