Re: Callback



fixed

as I understand it...
it is a term used in "asynchronous" languages (javascript) in which
a callback will be a method of the "base program" checking on the "asynchronous" program to see if it is done, and to receive the results...

Has anyone ever heard of a callback as it is related to the IBM i? I was asked to explain a callback during an interview and I'd never even heard of it. Can any of you explain to me what a callback is and how it is used? I tried google but didn't get a good explanation.

Thanks.

Warmest Regards,
