Accepting and Displaying Data on Large Screens

Screens larger than 25 lines are detected automatically by your COBOL system.

Programs using ANSI ACCEPT/DISPLAY statements, enhanced ACCEPT/DISPLAY syntax, Screen Section and the COBOL system library routines should run correctly on large screens. If an application is developed for a screen larger than the screen it is run on, the extra lines of a multiple-field ACCEPT or DISPLAY are lost. In addition, if the position specified by the AT clause of an ACCEPT or DISPLAY statement is off the screen, the screen is scrolled up by one line.
