X >_Workstation_> Under AIX, OS/2, and Windows the RECORD DELIMITER clause
X is not supported for line sequential files. It is treated as a comment for sequential, relative and indexed files. <_Workstation_<

The RECORD DELIMITER clause indicates the method of determining the length of a variable-length record on an external medium. It can be specified only for variable-length records.

If STANDARD-1 is specified, the external medium must be a magnetic tape file.

Can be any COBOL word.

The RECORD DELIMITER clause is syntax checked, but no compile-time or run-time verification checking is done, and the clause has no effect on the execution of the program.
