Class Condition Tests

Restriction: National Locale Support is only supported for native COBOL code.

For programs which have been compiled with the NLS directive set, the run-time system invokes locale-specific tests when it needs to carry out class condition tests. These tests determine if a string of information is in ALPHABETIC, ALPHABETIC-UPPER, ALPHABETIC-LOWER or NUMERIC format. The numeric test always tests that all characters are in the range of ASCII 0-9.
