option #7

Message manager



USupported on UNIX
VSupported on OpenVMS

System option #7 determines whether the runtime uses the Synergy message manager or the local message facilities.

If you set option #7, Synergy DBL uses the Synergy message manager (which is the Synergy DBL daemon on UNIX) if it is available. If the message manager is not available, this option is ignored.

On OpenVMS, option #7 is on by default. If this option is not set, Synergy DBL uses the local message facilities for the SEND and RECV statements, which means that interprocess SENDs and RECVs are not possible.
