Cobol Print Tool

From Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

A tool to edit the print fields in a COBOL source. With this tool a programmer can visually shrink/enlarge the fields, align them with the preceding/following lines, and finally generate a new structure listing to include in the WORKING-STORAGE section. Pictures are automatically updated whenever possible, otherwise the user is prompted to do so.

The program is in italian.

LIMITATIONS: This tool is thought to work with IBM VS COBOL II. Though I've tried to be as generic as possible, it is not guaranteed to work with other COBOL dialects, and may even be influenced by coding style. Since this is still beta code, it is recommended to compare the resulting structures with the original ones, to check for errors. The code does not support the OCCURS keyword.
