Hi,

EJECT is a compiler directing stmt. It is used to skip the source code listing to a new page. It does not become part of the pgm and has no function within the pgm itself.

Hi Jack,

Thanks for the reply... Please clarify me whether I can use this statement any where (between division names, middle of pragraphs... etc) in the COBOL source code as it has nothing to do with the program.


Thanks,
JP

Yes, you can, as you can use SKIP n, where n=1,2, or 3 to insert blank lines in the listing.

You can also use the TITLE 'xxx' stmt, where xxx are any chars of any length (to position 133 on the line, I think) to print a personalized title at the top of each page in the compiler listing.
