What programming languages are supported by Source Program Compare, and how do you specify the language?


There is a setting you use to specify the programming language, and you set that to the first letter of the language:

  • For Assembler, columns 1 through 72 are compared. (This setting can also be used for PL/1 programs, or for JCL that has sequence numbers in columns 73-80.)
  • For Cobol, columns 7 through 72 are compared.
  • For JCL, columns 1 through 80 are compared.
  • For RPG, columns 6 through 74 are compared.
