Question Title What compiler options cannot be specified with the >> IMP OPTION compiler directive?

The compiler options that cannot be specified in the source file with the >> IMP OPTION directive are:

-rw, -rc, -sf, -st, -sa, -cv, -stl

For example, the following syntax will NOT suppress the reserved word YYYYDDD:


Instead, to remove YYYYDDD as a reserved word add -rw=YYYYDDD to your compiler command line, or specify it using the iscobol.compiler.options property. For example,

iscc -rw=YYYYDDD myprog.cbl

or add the following line to your properties file:


For vCOBOL replace iscc with vcc and iscobol.compiler.options with vcobol.compiler.options in the above examples.
