Abstract:

The COBOL Compiler Validation System is used to validate COBOL compiler and to ensure their conformance to the Federal Standard as prescribed in FIPS PUB 21-1. The system consist of a comprehensive set of audit routines, their related data, and an executive routine which prepares the audit routines for compilation in a particular hardwareoperating system environment. Each audit routine is a COBOL program which includes several tests and support procedures indicating the result of the tests. All modules of the 1974 COBOL standard are represented except for the Communications module. Both the arithmetic expressions and the ENTER statement of the Nucleus module are also excluded due to the lack of definition as to their use and results. The executive routine provides a method for resolving implementor names within the source COBOL programs. The executive routine also provides the user with a means for updating source programs and generating the operating system control cards required. The COBOL Compiler Validation System Users Guide is available from NTIS as report number FCCTSCCVS74-7720.
