Working with a Large Code Base

Traditional COBOL applications often include a large number of source files and make thousands of lines of code.

This document provides both best practice recommendations about how to work with Visual Studio and how to make the most of the IDE when working with large applications. It includes advice on how to create and configure your projects, and what to configure in the IDE in order to achieve optimum performance. It also includes directions as to how you can import your existing legacy applications into Visual COBOL.
