Specifying Ranges for COBOL Programs

For COBOL programs, you specify the paragraphs in the range for structure-based component extraction in one of three ways:

Note: For traditional structure-based COBOL components, Component Maker inserts in the complement the labels of the first and last paragraphs in the range. The first paragraph is replaced in the complement with a CALL statement followed by a GO TO statement. The last paragraph is always empty.

The GO TO statement transfers control to the last paragraph. If the GO TO statement and its target paragraph are not required to ensure correct call flow, they are omitted.
