Terminal format is convenient for developing programs interactively. This format has the following characteristics:
ACUCOBOL-GT Terminal format is compatible with the VAX COBOL terminal source format, except for the introduction of the identification area, which VAX COBOL does not support. ACUCOBOL-GT Terminal mode is also compatible with ICOBOL terminal source format, except that area A must start in column 1 (in ICOBOL area A may start in column 2).
Set this terminal format using the SOURCEFORMAT"TERMINAL" Compiler directive, or using the -St compiler option.
