Support for the COBOL language seems to be broken. I modified filetypes.cobol to function properly and added comments to document the supported variables in the [keywords] section. As well, for the tag parser cobol.c needed some tuning to better isolate only valid cases.

  • The changes to the COBOL parser break the simple.cbl test case, could you please either fix the test case or the parser? Also additional test cases would be great.

    Also, did the parser support free-format, and does the update? I pretty much don't know anything about COBOL, just trying to avoid some regressions :)

     
  • I later saw your instructions for submissions. Updated work is in pull request #320. Please let me know of anything else that may be required. Look forward to hearing from you again. Great work. We use geany ( my patched version ) at work as out COBOL IDE and maintain more than 80 COBOL applications comprising more than 320000 lines of code.
