Compiler Directive Statements

Postby chetan_007 » Tue Oct 27, 2009 10:50 pm


What's the role of Compiler Directvie Statements stated below.
1) Eject,
2) Skip,
3) Title

I don't think above statements are mandatory for a cobol program, I don't understand why we need to use above words.
Could some one plz explain........

Thanks in advance
