COBOL Use

>COBOL Use Statement - HP COBOL II/XL
The COBOL USE statement specifies procedures for input-output error handling, user label processing, and debugging. There are three general formats of the COBOL USE statement.

>COBOL Use Statement - HP COBOL OpenVMS
The COBOL USE statement specifies Declarative USE procedures to handle input/output exceptions and errors. It can also specify procedures to be executed before the program processes a specific report group.

>COBOL Use Statement - ILE COBOL
The COBOL USE statement specifies procedures for input/output exception or error handling that are to be executed in addition to the system-defined procedures. Although the COBOL USE statement is a compiler-directing statement, it can appear only in the Procedure Division, and it can begin only in Area B.

>COBOL Use Statement - Micro Focus Visual COBOL
The COBOL USE statement specifies procedures for input-output error handling, that are in addition to the standard procedures provided by the input-output control system. A COBOL USE statement, when present, must immediately follow a section header in the Declaratives Section and must be followed by a period followed by a space. The USE statement in COBOL itself is never executed; it merely defines the conditions calling for the execution of the USE procedures.
