Hello,

There is an "IBM Manuals" link at the top of the page. Near the top of the manuals page are COBOL Language Refereence manuals for multiple current versions of the cobol compiler.

If you find something in the manual that is not clear, post it here along with what was not clear and someone will be able to clarify.
