and i guess for each row in sysin - we have to write accapt statement in cobol pgm,
1. Just treat SYSIN as any other file - code a SELECT and FD statements, OPEN/READ/CLOSE. The reference name in the SELECT statement is SYSIN.
2. If you want to use ACCEPT, code an EOF rec in the input stream. You can use "END" or any other character(s) that you're sure won't appear as valid I/P. Then check for it after every ACCEPT to stop the loop.
In this case you you don't need OPEN/CLOSE. _________________ Regards,
