The SKIP statements are compiler-directing statements, and are well documented in the fine manual.

The SKIP1 statements specify blank lines that the compiler should be added when printing the source listing.

Eg- SKIP1 - Specifies a single blank line to be inserted in the source listing.

Can be coded in Area A or Area B.
Must be the only statement in the line
Terminated by a period.
