COBOL - Switch Status Condition
The switch-status condition determines the on or off status of an UPSI switch.
Must be defined in the special-names paragraph as associated with the on or off value of an UPSI switch. (See SPECIAL-NAMES paragraph.)
The switch-status condition tests the value associated with condition-name. (The value is considered to be alphanumeric.) The result of the test is true if the UPSI switch is set to the value (0 or 1) corresponding to condition-name.
