Hi,

Code:
MEMORY SIZE
    The amount of main storage needed to run the object program.  The
    MEMORY SIZE clause is syntax-checked, but is treated as documentation.
 
    Note:  MEMORY SIZE is an obsolete element, and will be deleted from
    the next revision of the COBOL 85 Standard.
 
    integer
        Expressed in words, characters, or modules.
 
PROGRAM COLLATING SEQUENCE IS
    The collating sequence used in this program is the collating sequence
    associated with the specified alphabet-name.
 
    The collating sequence pertains to this program and any programs it
    may contain.
 
alphabet-name
    The collating sequence.
 
PROGRAM COLLATING SEQUENCE determines the truth value of the following
nonnumeric comparisons:
 
   Those explicitly specified in relation conditions
   Those explicitly specified in condition-name conditions.
 
The PROGRAM COLLATING SEQUENCE clause also applies to any nonnumeric merge
or sort keys, unless the COLLATING SEQUENCE phrase is specified in the
MERGE or SORT statement.
 
The PROGRAM COLLATING SEQUENCE clause is not applied to the DBCS character
set.
 
When the PROGRAM COLLATING SEQUENCE clause is omitted, the EBCDIC
collating sequence is used.  (See Appendix B, "EBCDIC and ASCII Collating
Sequences" in topic APPENDIX1.2.)
 
Note:  This element may exhibit different behavior when the CMPR2 compiler
option is in effect.  For more information, see VS COBOL II Migration
Guide for MVS and CMS or VS COBOL II Migration Guide for VSE.
 
SEGMENT-LIMIT IS
    Certain permanent segments can be overlaid by independent segments
    while still retaining the logical properties of fixed portion
    segments. (Fixed portion segments are made up of fixed permanent and
    fixed overlayable segments.)
 
    Note:  SEGMENT-LIMIT is an obsolete element, and will be deleted from
    the next revision of the COBOL 85 Standard.
 
    Priority-number
        An integer ranging from 1 through 49.
 
        When SEGMENT-LIMIT is specified:
 
           A fixed permanent segment is one with a priority-number less
            than the priority-number specified.
 
           A fixed overlayable segment is one with a priority-number
            ranging from that specified through 49, inclusive.
 
        For example, if SEGMENT-LIMIT IS 25 is specified:
 
           Sections with priority-numbers 0 through 24 are fixed
            permanent segments.
 
           Sections with priority-numbers 25 through 49 are fixed
            overlayable segments.
 
        When SEGMENT-LIMIT is omitted, all sections with priority-numbers
        0 through 49 are fixed permanent segments.
 
Except for the PROGRAM COLLATING SEQUENCE clause, the OBJECT-COMPUTER
paragraph is syntax-checked, but is treated as documentation.
