Parameters
The following parameters are available:
  • name
    This required parameter is the name of the load module you want to link as a transient mode extended feature.
  • [,nn]
    (VSE only) These are the core requirements in nnK for the phase. If you omit them, 8 KB is assumed.
Operation
Once specified, the extended feature remains in effect until another ++USING command is encountered. A subsequent ++USING command replaces the current extended feature.
If a resident mode (linked) extended feature is active, it receives control before the transient mode feature. If it modifies the IOCODE, the transient mode feature is not given control for that processing cycle.
