Can you not read Appendix B of the COBOL Language Reference manual for Enterprise COBOL (SC23-8528), which clearly states a maximum of 4,194,303 PERFORM statements?

It does clearly state that, but I wonder exactly what it means? The maximum number of Procedure-names (same source) is 1,048,575 :-)

I guess to all but code-generators, the is effectively no limit. If you could, continously, code one perform in 20 seconds, 24/7, it would take nearly three years to reach the limit. I doubt you could edit the file after a while, either :-)

And you are allowed to PERFORM the same paragraph / section more than once....

Ta! Daa!! And we have re-usability within the same module. . . :)
