ILE COBOL Reserved words

The ILE COBOL language has added ALLOCATE, DEFAULT, and FREE to the list of reserved words. Reserved words can only be used as specified in the COBOL language defined formats. Use of these words as a user-defined word will not be allowed by the compiler and the user-defined word must be changed.

The ILE COBOL Reserved Word List has been updated to include a number of other words that are not currently used by the compiler. These words will receive a low severity diagnostic message by the compiler and it is recommended that these words not be used as user-defined words. See the ILE COBOL Reserved Word List appendix in the ILE COBOL Reference guide for a complete list of reserved words.
