Q47104: Cannot Use Overlays in a Bound Application
Article: Q47104 Product(s): See article Version(s): 5.01.21 5.03 | 5.01.21 5.03 Operating System(s): MS-DOS | OS/2 Keyword(s): ENDUSER | | mspl13_basic Last Modified: 30-AUG-1989 Question: How can I incorporate overlays into my bound application? Response: You cannot use overlays in a bound application. To bind an application, you must first have a runnable OS/2 executable; then, you use the BIND utility to make it run in both OS/2 and DOS. OS/2 executables do not understand overlays so you cannot incorporate them into an OS/2 executable. Hence, you cannot use overlays in a bound program.
