When I want a COBOL program to end, I always code a GOBACK statement.

Fair warning ... I haven't seriously looked at COBOL since I was in college ... some 30+ years ago.

I've got a customer problem where a COBOL program is remaining active even after it's been exited. Even though the program has been replaced (and the original program moved to a different library), when they re-run the program, the moved program object goes active.

In RPG we would shut down a program by setting on LR and exiting the program.

If we want to keep the program active, we would NOT set LR on and exit.

How would you exit a program normally in COBOL ... and how would you exit the program but leave the program active?
