NLD resolves references to the Shared Run-time Libraries that are specified when building an executable program in native languages.
Native TAL (PTAL)
The NLD utility links one or more TNS/R object files to produce an executable or non-executable native object file (file code 700). An executable native object file cannot be input to the NLD utility at a later time but a non-executable native object file can.
Link one or more TNS/R native object files to produce a loadfile or linkfile
Modify existing loadfiles
NLD cannot be run interactively. It is run from the native compilers or from a batch obey file containing NLD commands.
BP-FILE-NLD-01 NLD should be secured "UUNU".
BP-OPSYS-OWNER-02 NLD should be owned by SUPER.SUPER.
BP-OPSYS-FILELOC-02 NLD must reside in $SYSTEM.SYSTEM.
If available, use Safeguard software or a third party object security product to grant access to NLD object files only to users who require access in order to perform their jobs.
BP-SAFE-NLD-01 Add a Safeguard Protection Record to grant appropriate access to the NLD object file.
Who owns the NLD object file?
Who is allowed to execute NLD on the system?
Is the NLD object file correctly secured with the Guardian or Safeguard system?
