Altnernative to ACCEPT

Postby cwseay » Mon Apr 29, 2019 7:51 pm

In another thread a member informed me that ACCEPT was not the best way to get input for a COBOL program. I am using ACCEPT to get a value from the user. Is there another method I should be using?

The READ statement in COBOL is the usual, normal, accepted way to get input.
