COBOL — Mapping of short and long

  • Key: COBOL-3
  • Legacy Issue Number: 19255
  • Status: open  
  • Source: Anonymous
  • Summary:

    The integer ranges given are wrong, correct would be -2^15 to 2^15 -1 and -2^31 to 2^31 -1.
    The COBOL Representation for short should be PIC S9(4) BINARY (which is 2 bytes) and for long PIC S9(10) BINARY (which is 4 bytes).
