While using PS_HOME,PS_APP_HOME and PS_CUST_HOME for cobol programs

when the pscbl.mak process is run, it seems to be converting to unicode first and moving them to multiple cblunicode directories, and then compiling them. Eg:

1. First converts cobols in PS_HOME/src/cbl to unicode and copies to PS_HOME/src/cblunicode (contains tools unicode files)

Next, it converts cobols in PS_APP_HOME/src/cbl and copies to PS_APP_HOME/src/cblunicode (this now contains tools+app unicode files)


Question:   Why is copying tools unicode files to this location?

Lastly, it converts cobols in PS_CUST_HOME/src/cbl and copies to PS_CUST_HOME/src/cblunicode (contains tools+app+cust unicode files)


Question:  Why is it copying tools and app unicode files here?
