COBOL Source Code Formatter

The COBOLFormatter tool reorganizes COBOL source text files to neatly indent code blocks according to their nesting level. It is a member of SD's family of Source Code Formatters.

COBOL Formatter Features

  • Formatted code compiles and executes exactly like unformatted code
  • Specification of indentation step distance
  • Specification of arbitrary input tab column positions
  • Options to
    • place line break before arithmetic operators: + - * / **
    • place line break before logical operators: OR AND
    • place line break before relational operators: < <= = >= > and NOT
    • place line break before reference modifications
    • place line breaks before subscripts
  • Can process batches of files, specified either manually or through a Java-based file-selector GUI.

Source File Browser

The COBOL Source File Browser not only formats COBOL for web pages but also provides a hyperlinked cross reference for every identifier, leading to its definition point and complete list of references to the identifier.
