About Creating, Editing and Navigating Source Code

You create and edit the source code for the Assembler modules in your project in the same way as the source code for your COBOL modules.

Some of the IDE's facilities for navigating source code are available for Assembler source code; these are:

Note: For source code downloaded from a mainframe, you might want to consider removing the sequence numbers in positions 73 through 80 of each record. The source files for Assembler support are line-sequential, variable-length files. If you omit the sequence numbers, you can also omit the trailing blanks at the end of each instruction. This can result in a significant saving of disk space on a PC.

The presence of these sequence numbers does not cause errors at assembly time.
