Using build tasks to compile your code

Visual Studio Code is a light-weight editor and differs significantly from an IDE (Visual Studio or Eclipse). It supports working with files, folders, and workspaces but does not support projects and does not offer a build system by default. It offers build tasks that are commands and scripts that enable you to use the Micro Focus Enterprise Developer compiler to build your COBOL or PL/I files.

You can access the build tasks from the Terminal menu.
