I'm starting the progress of migrating RM Cobol (Linux) to RM Cobol/Visual Cobol(Linux) with Eclipse (Windows)
I've discovered the option to set the compiler directives in a file cobol.dir and have that control some of the compile, build and file options.
I was wondering what is the compiler directive for the cobol.dir to tell it to use RM. I know its completely lazy, because I can change the Dialect in the Build Properties ... but I'm intending of doing somewhere north of 1600 programs, and anything that will allow me to move these from RM with a Text DE to RM with a Visual IDE would be helpful.
I know my cobol.dir is working because I've moved the idxformat"21" to it for RM File access, as opposed to having the set command in the programs.
Any tips for how to accomplish this ... any warnings for doing it this way?
Long Term the plan is to move from RM Text DE to RM Eclipse to VC Eclipse ... but for now I need to learn Eclipse and start using it regularly which will involve me getting away from RM Text DE.
