X 8.1.13 SKIP1/2/3 Statements

X The SKIP1/2/3 statements specify blank lines that the compiler should add
X when printing the source listing. SKIP statements have no effect on the
X compilation of the source program itself.

X SKIP1, SKIP2, or SKIP3 can be written anywhere in either Area A or Area B,
X and can be terminated with a separator period. It must be the only
X statement on the line.

X The SKIP1/2/3 statement must be embedded in a program source. For
X example, in the case of batch applications, the SKIP1/2/3 statement must
X be placed between the CBL (PROCESS) statement and the end of the program
X (or the END PROGRAM header, if specified).
