Bill, I think COBOL F was the same as ANS COBOL.
The manual I have, GC28-6396-5, IBM OS Full American
National Standard COBOL, shows, in the JCL for a sample
program, "EXEC PGM=IKFCBL00". This manual also has
the documentation for the first release of OS/VS COBOL
and the publication date on the amendment is May 15, 1974.
Only the standards X3.23-1968 and ISO/R 1989-1972 are
mentioned for both.
While I said "I think", above, I never used the OS compiler
at the college; but I do have a source listing produced by a
DOS compiler I used at work. The title on the output is IBM
DOS AMERICAN NATIONAL STANDARD COBOL
with the additional text CBF CL3-6, which I take to mean
COBOL F or ANS COBOL Version 3.
