1.3.2 Indicator Area

Use the indicator area to specify:

See "Continuation Lines" in topic, "Comment Lines" in topic, and "Debugging Lines" in topic

The indicator area can be used for source listing formatting. A slash ("/") placed in the indicator column will cause the compiler to start a new page for the source listing, and the corresponding source record to be treated as a comment. The effect may be dependent on the LINECOUNT compiler option. For information on the LINECOUNT compiler option, see the IBM COBOL Programming Guide for your platform.
