COBOL Directives

The following are COBOL directives that the Compiler also passes to COBSQL regardless of their position in a command line relative to PREPROCESS(cobsql):
Directive Description
[NO]BELL Controls whether COBSQL sounds the bell when an error occurs.
[NO]BRIEF Controls whether COBSQL shows SQL error text as well as the error number.
[NO]CONFIRM Displays accepted/rejected COBSQL directives.
[NO]LIST Saves the precompiler listing file (.lis).
[NO]WARNING Determines the lowest severity of SQL errors to report.

For complete information on each of these directives, see Compiler Directives.
