COBOL Interview Questions and Answers


What the difference is between CONTINUE and NEXT SENTENCE ?

They appear to be similar, that is, the control goes to the next sentence in the
paragraph. But, Next Sentence would

take the control to the sentence after it finds a full stop (.). Check out by writing
the following code example, one if

sentence followed by 3 display statements (sorry they appear one line here because
of formatting restrictions) If 1 0

then next sentence end if display ‘line 1' display ‘line 2'. display
‘line 3'. Note- there is a dot (.) only at the end of the line.
