My site at work has a newer compiler since 2007
I was checking the DB2 packages of some heavily used subroutines that the language type column of these packages
shows a mix bags of '2' and '3'.
When the value is '2' its description is "VS COBOL II or IBM COBOL REL1"
When the value is '3' its description is "IBM COBOL REL2+"
Is there a benefit or performance gain to re-compile Cobol source from VS Cobol II to Cobol REL2 ?
Some of those source modules has last precompile timestamp of 1998.
Any danger also to use the OPT(FULL) when re-compile these old programs>
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
