Abstract : The COBOL Compiler Validation System is used to validate COBOL Compilers and to ensure their conformance to the Federal Standard as prescribed in FIPS-PUB-21. The system consists of a comprehensive set of audit routines, their related data, and an executive routine which prepares the audit routines for compilation in a particular hardware/operating system environment. The executive routine provides a method for resolving implementor names within the source Cobol programs. The executive routine also provides the user with a means for updating source programs and generating the operating system control cards required. The COBOL Compiler Validation System User's Guide provides the detailed specifications for the Validation System, and step-by-step instruction on the implementation and execution of the audit routines for a given computer system.
