Filler clause - cobol programming, COBOL Programming

FILLER CLAUSE:

Consider the statements as shown below:

1)  01    f    pic     x(80)  value    all "-".

This statement origins a line of 80 characters filled with "-" 

2)  01    f       pic x(60) value all "*".

    This statement origins a line of 60 characters filled with "*"

3)  01 filler pic x(10) value "TESTING".

Remember that we can either use simply "f" or "filler" in the statements.

Normally fillers are used to improve the clarity of the output and form designs utilize the potential of filler clauses to the maximum.
