Comments Cobol



  • Hello,
    I noticed that the color of a comment when you set the Cobol language does not work well. Such as whether the comment is * the entire row is colored in green, otherwise it remains black:
    example:
    * Comment ok
    abcdef * ko comment, is not green.

    does anyone know how risovere?

    thank you

    ie if the asterisk in position 7 is preceded by six bytes (position 1-6) the comment is not colored green

    does anyone know how risovere?

    thank you

    seems it works only if 5 bytes, than a space and then the asteriks.
    Nevertheless, this is an lexer specific issue and is handled by scintilla.

  • hello,

    how can I do to install the libraries of Scintilla to correctly view the comments Cobol?
    how should I do?
    thanks



  • @Federico-Barbolan

    scintilla is part of notepad++, there is nothing to configure.
    What problem/issue did you discover?

    Cheers

  • I noticed that the comments do not work when correttament from column 1 to column 6 is a tag and after the column 7 is an asterisk (*); while it works correctly then if the asterisk is in position 7 or if the previous tag is from position 1 to 5:
    an example follows:

      * THE COMMENT IS CORRECTLY COLORED IN GREEN
    

    ABCDE * THE COMMENT IS CORRECTLY COLORED IN GREEN
    ABCDEF* THE COMMENT IS NOT CORRECTLY COLORED IN GREEN

    how we can intervene on the Scintilla libraries to solve the problem?
    thanks
