RM/COBOL Conversion Issues

The syntax of most of the RM/COBOL source programs which you supply to this system will be accepted, and will run successfully. Sometimes, however, this COBOL system might reject some of the syntax in your original RM/COBOL source program, or might cause your program to behave unexpectedly at run time.

This COBOL system has been designed in such a way that there will probably be few or none of these problems. If, however, you do encounter any syntax discrepancies, this section details the known features which may cause errors, or which may not behave as you are expecting, at run time. Hints are also given on how you can either rectify the cause of such errors, or emulate the RM/COBOL type of behavior under this system.
