I found a posting in the archives from May 2001 that dealt with things to
watch for when moving from OPM to ILE COBOL. One of the items dealt with
NEXT SENTENCE. A reply claimed that in OPM COBOL, NEXT SENTENCE worked like
CONTINUE (incorrect) while in ILE COBOL it skipped to the statement
following the next period (correct). Does anyone have any more details? We
have experienced some funnies with NEXT SENTENCE when END-IFs were added to
our code but the funnies seemed to be when our application was run on Unix
(Micro Focus COBOL), not AS/400. The archives search revealed no other entry
for NEXT SENTENCE so clarification would be very useful. Thanks.
