1.3.7 Figurative constants
Figurative constants are reserved words that name and refer to specific constant values. The reserved words for figurative constants and their meanings are:
literal can be an alphanumeric literal, a DBCS literal, a national literal, or a figurative constant other than the ALL literal.
When literal is not a figurative constant, ALL literal represents one or more occurrences of the string of characters that compose the literal.
When literal is a figurative constant, the word ALL has no meaning and is used only for readability.
The figurative constant ALL literal must not be used with the CALL, INSPECT, INVOKE, STOP, or STRING statements.
