Syntax:

                  +------------------------+
                  V                        | 
>>-.---.-OVERRIDE--"rsv-word" = "user-word"--><
   +-/-+

Parameters:

rsv-word
Existing reserved word.
user-word
Any COBOL word not the same as an existing reserved word.

Properties:

Default: No change of reserved words takes place.
Phase: Syntax check
$SET: Initial

Comments:

This directive equates an existing reserved word to the specified user-defined word, so that, in the program, user-word is treated as a reserved word, and rsv-word can be used as a user-defined word.

The equals signs must be surrounded by spaces. If the parameters are repeated they must be separated by spaces.

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