This failure is a significant, albeit hidden, cost in most installations. The COBOL language enhancement facility (CLEF) is designed to permit users to enhance the syntax and semantics of their language to meet their requirements - whether it be for reasons of portability, programming style or productivity. CLEF is a powerful high-level syntax macro scheme designed… CONTINUE READING
