I'm new to Cobol, but I'm experienced with Eclipse and programming at all.
I'm using Visual COBOL 2.2 for Eclipse. Eclipse Standard 4.3.2, Windows 8.1. Default parameters for all programs.
I'm learning simple programs, like "Hello World". All programs are text-based, nothing graphical.
But I have one very common and strange situation. I change a few lines but Eclipse still runs old version of my program!
Display "Please, enter the Price"
Compute Price = Price * 1.2.
Move Price to Price-ed.
I have included the most important part of the program, the divisions and sections are correct defined.
We see that Price is multiplied by 1.2. I change to other value, let's say 1.5, save the program, build, But when the program runs, it still computes 1.2
I change to 2.7 save the program, build, launch the program and it still computes 1.2. I need to close Eclipse, re-open, and then the correct value is executed.
I have a guess... Eclipse, or Visual COBOL, is running old, cached versions, of the program, not the new one.
Thanks in advance.
