Editing Code

The Micro Focus Enterprise extension offers editing support for COBOL (including native, native Object-Oriented COBOL, .NET COBOL and JVM COBOL), PL/I, Assembler, BMS, JCL, and IMS code.

You edit source code in Visual Studio Code by opening either individual files or by opening them as part of a folder. Visual Studio Code does not have a project system.

To edit your sources:

  1. Open the folder that contains your sources inside Visual Studio Code.
  2. Open the file you want to edit.

    Visual Studio Code offers colorization of the code in the editor.
