Hi,

I was looking into a COBOL program where the only statements in the procedure division apart from inits were

Code:
PREPROCESSOR SORT
10A



The program sorts the input and sends it to the output.

Please tell me how this works or direct me to some manual on the preprocessor statement?

I found some hint on this in MF COBOL.
Quote:
B.1.1.12 Integrated Preprocessor Support
Integrated Preprocessor Support is an extension to the Compiler. It enables the Compiler to invoke a user-defined language processor to convert non-COBOL syntax to COBOL syntax. When debugging, you see the original source, as it is before statements are altered by the preprocessor


Hope this helps.
