The following sections describe supported ACUCOBOL-GT features and how to enable them.
Converting ACUCOBOL-GT Applications With Visual COBOL you can build, compile and debug ACUCOBOL-GT applications. Certain Compiler directives are provided to enable compatibility
with some of ACUCOBOL-GT's language extensions, data files, and other behaviors.
ACUCOBOL-GT File Handling Visual COBOL allows you to continue to use your existing ACUCOBOL-GT data files, including Vision indexed data files.
ACUCOBOL-GT Windowing Syntax Your COBOL system provides some support for ACUCOBOL-GT windowing syntax that enables you to draw lines and boxes on the terminal
screen, and create virtual terminal windows on a physical terminal. All ACCEPT and DISPLAY statements then act within the
current window (except for ACCEPT format 1, 2, or 3 statements, DISPLAY format 1 statements, and DISPLAY WINDOW/LINE/BOX statements).
The syntax also enables underlying displays to be kept and restored.
