Micro Focus Visual COBOL for Visual Studio > Welcome > Visual COBOL Tutorials Guide Visual COBOL Tutorials Guide There are a number of tutorials that guide you through creating COBOL applications of various sorts using the Visual Studio IDE. Upgrading from COBOL Workbench to Visual COBOL for Eclipse was much easier than I had anticipated. I had expected the need to rework code and was reluctant to make the move. However, the risk of continuing to use older technology, as well as the promise of a modern development toolset with mixed language support, convinced us to pursue the upgrade. If you are debugging an optimized COBOL program, you can use the MOVE command to assign a value to a program variable only if you first enter the SET WARNING OFF command. If you are debugging a COBOL program that was compiled with the OPTIMIZE compiler option, neither operand of the MOVE command can be a variable that was discarded by the optimizer. This book is an introduction to object-oriented programming in COBOL, using ISO COBOL, Micro Focus OO extensions or a mixture of both. It includes explanations of concepts, programming tutorials, programming documentation and information about the Micro Focus class libraries.
