Hello,

Read the program skipping everything until PROCEDURE DIVISION is reached.

Continue reading, skipping all comments.

If there is code in the A-margin, it is a line you want (this will be paragraphs and sections).

There may be more considerations, but that should get you started.

You cannot use cobol terms to explain something to people that do not understand cobol.
