Viasoft Inc, Phoenix, Arizona says its Via/SmartEdit is the first tool to integrate language-sensitive extensions to IBM’s ISPF Editor Cobol development system by giving it Cobol smart capabilities that enable programmers to automate enhancement and maintenance tasks – identifying Cobol syntax errors automatically, locating related Cobol verbs and data fields with a keystroke, and building a tree-like structure of the execution flow of any Cobol program: Via/SmartEdit uses the company’s proprietary Analytical Engine to extract extensive information about how Cobol programs work and store it on-line in Viasoft’s Application Knowledge Repository and uses the information to extend the functionality of the ISPF Editor by improving its basic command set, and adding new commands that understand Cobol and its program logic; it uses the ISPF Editor 2.0 up and costs $25,000 to $39,500, depending on CPU class.
