X options-list

X A series of one or more compiler options, each one separated by a
X comma or a space.

X For more information on compiler options, see the IBM COBOL
X Programming Guide for your platform.

X The CBL (PROCESS) statement can be preceded by a sequence number in
X columns 1 through 6. The first character of the sequence number must be
X numeric, and CBL or PROCESS can begin in column 8 or after; if a sequence
X number is not specified, CBL or PROCESS can begin in column 1 or after.

X The CBL (PROCESS) statement must end before or at column 72, and options
X cannot be continued across multiple CBL (PROCESS) statements. However,
X you can use more than one CBL (PROCESS) statement. If you use multiple
X CBL (PROCESS) statements, they must follow one another with no intervening
X statements of any other type.

X The CBL (PROCESS) statement must be placed before any comment lines or
X other compiler-directing statements.
