8.1.7 ENTER Statement



The ENTER statement allows the use of more than one source language in the same source program.

With COBOL for OS/390 & VM, COBOL Set for AIX, and VisualAge COBOL, only COBOL is allowed in the source program.

Note: The ENTER statement is syntax checked during compilation but has no effect on the execution of the program.
