Perform Until Exit

Perform Until Exit

Perform Until Exit

I have some code that compiles fine in ISCobol and MFCobol. However, it does not compile for ACUCobol.

Wondering if someone might have a suggestion on how I could get it coded for ACUCobol.

The compile error says "identifier expected, EXIT found"

perform until exit
read arc1 next
at end
exit perform
not at end
display counter
if (st not = "00" and
st not = "10")
move "Y" to w-err-sw
exit perform
add 1 to counter

Thank you very much for your expertise

perform until "A" = "B"

RE: Perform Until Exit

Thank you very much for the input.
The compiler does not allow for the statement I tried.....so...
The A=B code is similar to what was there previously (1=2) but that had the exposure of an infinite loop (which actually happened and requires different code.

Any other thought on how that section of code could be done?

PERFORM UNTIL EXIT also requires some statement to exit the perform (EXIT PERFORM or STOP RUN or GO TO). So, if you had an infinite loop problem before, you will still have it with UNTIL EXIT.
