COBOL Evaluate Multiple When Conditions

COBOL Evaluate 'OR' Condition
COBOL Evaluate ‘OR’ Condition

Sample Evaluate syntax to give ‘or’ condition is given . This is one of the most frequently used coding styles

Evaluate Marital-code
    When 'M'
       ADD 2 to People-count
    When 'S'
    When 'D'
    When 'W'
       ADD 1 to People-Count
End-Evaluate;

The way above code tells, WHEN in sequence you have 3 WHEN. That means, if you get in input either of the values, adding ‘1’ to people count.
