Pinned topic How to support customized commands in COBOL editor?

‏2012-12-13T13:38:19Z |
Hi,

I am using RDz8.0 for COBOL development on mainframe. Our COBOL system has some customized commands like following:

EXEC BMVT READ TABLE(XXXXX)
END-EXEC.

The standard parser in RDz cannot recognize this grammar. Hence I cannot use F3 to find variable declaration.

Is it possible to ignore these commands while parsing the source in RDz? Thanks!

BRs,
Boris

    In version 8.0.3 we introduced the Preprocessor Integration feature for the COBOL Editor and others. This feature allows you to point to either a local or remote preprocessor executables or a local preprocessor output file. The Editor is then able to tell which lines are modified and what the final COBOL output is, allowing the editor to correctly parse the file and make available features such as Open Declaration (F3).

    A demonstration of this feature is available here:
