COBOL Snippet: Tell where the control will when the below code execute IF (A=B) CONTINUE E..

Answer / manj

CONTINUE inside IF loop searches for the first terminator
END-IF and comes out.

NEXT SENTENCE searches for the first FULL STOP and goes to
the next line after that.

The above code does nothing. IF A=B, control comes to the
next line after END-IF and same for ELSE part too.

Answer / niveditha
