An IBM Enterprise Cobol for z/OS syntax highlighter. It will NOT build and/or compile anything. Possibly, in the future, I will include mainframe upload/download but even then, no automatic build/compile/link.
Highlights syntax for version 6.1. Includes CICS API for TS 5.1 and DB/2 v.10 (commands are recognized and colour-coded - no actual syntax checking is performed - YET!). Includes a dark theme that emphatizes language/api keywords.
None, except VS Code
Uh.... you tell me! Feel free to send me bug reports. I will fix them, but I cannot guarantee any timeline. This extension is a part-time affair... :p
Vastly based on BitLang.Cobol https://marketplace.visualstudio.com/items?itemName=bitlang.cobol.. It's a great extension, but it lacked that "mainframe flavour" I was looking for. I removed unsupported syntax, added (ancient) keywords and wrote a basic support for CICS/DB2 apis. Unfortunately I have no experience with IMS, hence support can be definitely improved.
Many thanks to Dr. Francesco Foresti https://github.com/francescoforesti for helping me with "proper" Regular Expressions (I had never done anything like this before....)
Initial release of enterprise-cobol-for-z-os
If time allows, I'd like to write a grammar for CICS api commands and another one for db/2. Also, I would like to find some way to download/upload sources, copybooks and DCLGENs from mainframe.
