Can anyone point me to a reference that might give details of how Enterprise COBOL stores compile options in an executable? I suspect that there are bits corresponding to the compile options stored at a specific offset. Thanks!

Take a look at Roland Schiradin's freeware utility CobAnal.

William - thanks for pointing me to that slick utility! I am going to play around with it when I have some time.

Bill - that is exactly what I was looking for. I appreciate it!

I'm not sure if this is mentioned, but the Information Bytes begin at X'84' of the load module, as illustrated in the link.
