​A report option to extract and display ALL copyright text for any module

using ENDEVOR to generate all Cobol 6 programs, as a default we have implemented the copyright option using vars from Endevor.


IBM syntax
Use COPYRIGHT to place a string in the object module if the object module is generated. If the object is linked into a program object, the string is loaded into memory with this program object.

               '-*-'                           

Default
COPYRIGHT=NO

The copyright string is limited to 64 characters in length.


this results in a external documentation reference for compile information
