You can also leave a space between the directive and its option to improve readability. If you are specifying this directive to the -C option of the Cob command line, you need to ensure that all characters are escaped correctly for the UNIX shell. For example, to specify ADDSYN on the command line:

cob -C 'addsyn "low" == "lowlight"' a.cbl

This directive does not appear in the list created with the SETTING directive.
