The reserved word options enable you to override the behavior of reserved words and synonyms.
The following compiler options are supported in Visual COBOL when using ccbl32 and ccbl64 from the command line or the ACUOPT Compiler directive.
|Allows you to change a reserved word. This option must be followed by two separate arguments: The first is the reserved word
you want to change. The second is the word that you want to use instead. For example,
-Rc TITLE NAME
will allow you to use "TITLE" as a user-defined word and will cause the word NAME to be treated as the reserved word TITLE. You may not specify a word that is already reserved as the new reserved word. This option may be repeated to transform multiple reserved words.
|Allows you to make a reserved word a synonym for another reserved word. This option must be followed by two separate arguments:
The first is the reserved word for which you want a synonym. The second is the word that functions as the synonym. For example,
-Rn COMP COMP-5causes COMP-5 to be treated the same as the reserved word COMP. This option may be repeated to make multiple synonyms.
|This option allows you to suppress a particular reserved word. The option must be followed (as the next separate argument) by the reserved word you want to suppress. This option may be repeated to suppress multiple reserved words. This option also allows you to suppress some non-reserved words, such as control names (for example, entry-field and label) or property names (for example, max-text and bitmap-number).
