Format of a Message File

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

When you write the message file, start it with the statements:

$quote x
$set 1

where x is the character you wish to use as a quote character.

Then, write each message in the format:

$ nnnnn  "your message here"

where the double-quote character (") is assumed to be the quote character set in the $quote statement above. You can change quote statements at any point in the message file; each change applies to all the messages which follow it up until the next $quote statement.
