With Enterprise COBOL for z/OS V5, you can use the DISPSIGN option to control output formatting for DISPLAY of signed numeric items.
The syntax of this option is as follows:
The default is DISPSIGN(COMPAT).
If you specify DISPSIGN(COMPAT), formatting for displayed values of signed numeric items is compatible with prior versions of Enterprise COBOL, and overpunch signs are generated in some cases; If you specify DISPSIGN(SEP), the displayed values for signed binary, signed packed-decimal, or overpunch signed zoned-decimal items are always formatted with a leading separate sign.
