In the IBM DOS/VS COBOL compatibility mode, the following reserved words may be used to control spacing of the program listing:
|EJECT||start a new page|
|SKIP1||skip one line before the next line (double spacing)|
|SKIP2||skip two lines before the next line (triple spacing)|
|SKIP3||skip three lines before the next line (quadruple spacing)|
IBM DOS/VS COBOL requires these words to appear in Area B. The reserved word must be the only thing on the line, other than tabs and spaces.
