Actually, I was afraid you were going to say something that I had overlooked or worse, didn't even know!

Re: Porting COBOL from MicroFocus to OpenCOBOL
@human
JoeRobbins' and the_piper's work are aimed to add important extensions to OC:
1) split keys;
2) Mf support implementation;
3) Sql extended support (precompiler).
The 1st is posix standard 2nd+3rd are asserted by OC to be supported.
If OC CE is meant to be as OC 1.1 is, what use is it planned for?
I don't mean JR's and the_p's works should be included "as they are". I just say there should be a way to make them available for download and tests "inside or aside" OC CE.
JoeRobbins said he worked on a modified .configure. Why not having both .configure and, say, .configure1 in packaged OC CE.
We all have been waiting a long time for Roger's showing up with 2.0 but, he does not even show in forum so, immagine.
Roger did a great work in the past but it is obvious, at least to me, that he has been, and is, engaged with something else and has no time for OC.

Re: Porting COBOL from MicroFocus to OpenCOBOL
I think you got me wrong. I want especially the split key stuff in CE (that was based on 1.1 and already has some patches - more if I find the time to sort the parts for the different patches out or if we get patches from others).
I've understood the precompiler as an own package (that would be welcome to find it's way to CE/contribute), not a change to cobc. The MF stuff may could be included, but not as a standard behaviour (maybe new config options).
What configure changes are in progress?

Re: Porting COBOL from MicroFocus to OpenCOBOL
Hey Joe,

are your changes ready for review and include in CE (see the CE thread if you did not do this already)? For the changes of key check please review MF Docs KEYCHECK and implement it with env vars (similar to file name mapping "DD_") to be included in CE. If this currently only works for VB/C/D-ISAM that is OK, too [as it isn't the default behaviour], if you can get it to work with BDB now/later this would be really nice.

@human
I was awaiting to see JoeRobbinks work.
Tried to write a couple of mails to info@bawtry.com but had no answer.
Do you have any news?

Re: Porting COBOL from MicroFocus to OpenCOBOL
Apologies! Apologies! Apologies!
I hadn't noticed this thread was being extended. Forgive my dozyness.

I will do my best to post this week (with code for split-keys, etc.)

marcellom: it's bawtry.net (NOT .com) email to "support@" - I hope that this doesn't "trash" our support mail-box!
