command to compile and execute code in COBOL
I have a cobalt code and I would like to compile it
I would use npp_exec plugin in order to achieve this but you can use the standard Run menu as well, depends how flexible you want to be.
… For example, here’s an NppExec script that I use to save, compile, and run a standalone C++ program:
npp_save cd "$(CURRENT_DIRECTORY)" g++ "$(FILE_NAME)" -o "$(NAME_PART)" npp_run cmd.exe /k "$(NAME_PART)"
For compiling cobol, you would use your cobol compiler rather than “g++”, and would have to format the command line appropriately; if your compiler is not in your path, you will have to do something like “c:\full\path\to\compileCobol.exe”.
If you don’t want to also run the program when compiled, then you could just remove the “npp_run …” command from the NppExec script.
