I believe you are interchanging/confusing a standard versus a compiler. COBOL-85 is a standard and if you want to know all of the -85 provisions, i'd suggest you search the web for a complete text of that standard.

Enterprise COBOL is is a compiler and all of the features are covered in the documentation available via the "Manuals" link at the top of the page.
