PSS ID Number: Q40861 Article last modified on 04-20-1993

3.00 3.00a | 3.00 3.00a MS-DOS | OS/2

The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft COBOL for MS-DOS and OS/2, versions 3.0 and 3.0a

Summary: Compiler directives tell Microsoft COBOL Versions 3.0 and 3.0a to compile a COBOL program with different dialects and optimizations. However, Microsoft COBOL Versions 3.0 and 3.0a do not support the following directives: ANALYZE CHARSET“EBCDIC” CICS CICSOPT CICSOPTIMIZE CICS-CPY COPYLBR ENSUITE FILECASE GANIM NLS OMF“GNT” PROFILE STRUCT VERBOSE WB

More Information: The above directives are for use with some of the Micro Focus add-on products, and they should not be changed from the default settings. Changing these directives without the proper Micro Focus add-on product present may cause the compiler to hang or to issue a compiler error. The default directives are found on Pages 2-56 through 2-58 of the “Microsoft COBOL Version 3.0: Operating Guide.”
