Editing Symbolically Linked Files

Modifying the target of a symbolically linked COBOL source file does not force a recompile of the program when refreshed in the Eclipse IDE. In addition, if the file is open in an editor while the target linked source file is edited then the changes are not automatically refreshed in the editor. Micro Focus recommends that you do not use symbolically linked files with Eclipse projects.

Note: This behavior applies to Windows and UNIX environments.
