Yes, you can do this. Just save the COBOL program object on the source
machine (SAVOBJ) and restore it (RSTOBJ) on the target machine (taking care
that you observe the standard rules for saving/restoring between two
machines such as dealing with different OS/400 release levels if you have
that situation). Obviously if the COBOL program uses any database files,
display files, etc. they also need to exist on the target machine.
