Mark Host Variables

Use the Mark Host Variables tool to add a $ (dollar sign) prefix before all program variables used in static SQL statements.

The $ prefix forces compilation errors when a variable is not defined. It also makes the code more readable.

The Mark Host Variables tool is part of the fglcomp compilation tool (fglcomp --mark-host-variables). For more information, see the Mark SQL host variables with $ topic in the Genero Business Development Language User Guide.
