Object-computer - configuration section, COBOL Programming

Object-Computer - Configuration section:

The computer name specifies a specific computer on which the object program is to be executed.

The MEMORY SIZE is used to show the amount of storage available to the object program. This clause is used in the conjunction with the SORT verb.

The PROGRAM COLLATING SEQUENCE clause specifies the collating sequence which is to be used to compare the nonnumeric data items. The alphabet name in this clause must be defined in the SPECIAL-NAMES paragraph to state the collating sequence. If this clause is missing or absent, the machine's own collating sequence known as the NATIVE is supposed.

The SEGMENT-LIMIT is used in most of the compilers to indicate that the sections having segment number less than the number specified in the integer-2 must be held in the permanent region of storage and must not be transferred to and from the virtual memory. All the entries in this paragraph are terminated using the period ( a dot). Below is the example of the OBJECT-COMPUTER paragraph.

OBJECT-COMPUTER.

MEMORY SIZE 8000 WORDS.
