Reply with quote

I tried writing a recursive program with VS-COBOL II. I got the following error during run time.

IGZ0015S A recursive call was attempted to a program that was already active.

Does this mean VS-COBOL II does not support recursive functionality or else some problem with the functionality of my code.

find the code below
IDENTIFICATION DIVISION.
PROGRAM-ID. COBOL1.
ENVIRONMENT DIVISION.
DATA DIVISION.
WORKING-STORAGE SECTION.
01 WORK-NUM PIC 9(02) VALUE 1.
01 INCREM PIC 9(01) VALUE 5.
PROCEDURE DIVISION.
COMPUTE WORK-NUM = WORK-NUM * INCREM.
COMPUTE INCREM = INCREM - 1
CALL 'COBOL1'.
IF INCREM = 0
DISPLAY ' FACTORIAL ' WORK-NUM
GOBACK.

regards
Muthu
