Global Common

Global common is a named BASIC variable space used to store variables and arrays in the identified area that is only initialized at logon.

Global common space is common for all levels of the same process (that is, level pushes, executes, file-time bridges & indexes, and so on).

Variables and/or arrays can be used for communication between programs and subroutines providing interprogram communication.
