hello,

The EJECT statement is a compiler-directing statement which causes the compiler to perform a page eject operation on the source listing.

The next source statement line (i.e.,the line following the EJECT statement) is then printed at the top of the next page.

TheSKIP statement is a compiler-directing statement, provided as an
IBM extension, which causes blank lines to be inserted in the source
program listing.
