Finalist Compatibility Interface or native?

Windows
Unix
Mainframe - z/OS
Windows and Unix platforms will call native Finalist.

Mainframe platforms can either call the Compatibility Interface (C/I) or native Finalist.

Compatibility Interface

Usually a COBOL program for the mainframe would have the following statement
CALL 'FINAL' USING FINAL-CALL-AREA

Native Finalist:

If using our batch driver, they are executing:
PGM=FINALIST

If using a COBOL program the following statements would be found:
CALL 'PBFNInit'
CALL 'PBFNInfo'
CALL 'PBFNProcess'
CALL 'PBFNTerminate'
