I'm getting an error when I use FIXED (old style) COBOL
format. If I put a "*" on column 7 it's been considered
as a continuation line and not a comment:

IDENTIFICATION DIVISION.
PROGRAM-ID. HELLO.
* considered as a continuation line
PROCEDURE DIVISION.
DISPLAY "Hello, world!"
STOP RUN.

$ htcobol hello.cob
hello.cob: 3: error: syntax error, on or before '*'
