Syntax:

>>-.---.-.----.--DBSPACE-------------------><
   +-/-+ +-NO-+

Parameters:

None

Properties:

Default: Depends on the setting of MF"integer". If integer is greater than 7, the default is DBSPACE. Otherwise, it is NODBSPACE. (Dialect)

$SET: Any

Dependencies:

DBSPACE set immediately by COBOL370, NCHAR"2", SAA, VSC2"2" or VSC2"3".

DBSPACE set immediately by MF"integer". If integer is greater than 7

Comments:

With DBSPACE, the Compiler uses the system-supplied double-byte space character. NODBSPACE provides compatibility with previous versions of this Compiler, where the double-byte space character was two ASCII space characters (x"2020").
