By default, the Code Editor displays ACUCOBOL-GT reserved words in blue, while ordinary text is shown in black. In addition to changing the color used to mark reserved words, discussed in Modifying Editor Appearance, you can add words to a keyword list, or remove words from that list, in order to determine how those words are displayed in the Code Editor. You can also determine how far the next line after the keyword will be indented, if at all.
These keyword lists affect only the workbench's colorization and auto-indent functions. Adding or deleting a keyword in a default list does not affect the behavior of the ACUCOBOL-GT compiler. To change the list of reserved words recognized by the compiler, use the -R flag, described in ACUCOBOL-GT User's Guide.
You can modify the set of keywords recognized by the AcuBench Code Editor as follows:
In the Add Keyword Set dialog, enter the name of the new set in the Keyword set name text box, then select one of the three radio buttons to indicate the source of the new keyword set. Select None to create an original keyword set, Exist set to base your new keyword set on an existing set, or External set to import a keyword set.
If you are importing an external keyword set, click the browse button to navigate to the location of the .ini file containing the keyword set you want to use.
If you are adding a keyword, use the New (Ins) push button at the top of the Keyword list box to add your new keyword.
If you are deleting a keyword, select the keyword and click the Delete button at the top of the Keyword list box.
To determine the automatic indenting behavior associated with Code Editor keywords, select one of the three Auto indent radio buttons near the bottom of the dialog box.
To modify keyword indent values, double-click in the Indent value column and enter the number of characters to indent the next line.
