There is a format that has to be taken care of while writing a structured COBOL program. One has to work within these guidelines to make a structured COBOL-

  • In order to construct a case, one has to use EQUIVALENT statements every time.
  • Scope terminators are used for nesting.
  • IN-LINE PERFORM statements are used for writing ‘do’ constructions. Also, use Tests before and Test after in performing statements while writing do-while statements.
