From the developer:

OpenCobolIDE is a simple cobol IDE based on the GnuCobol compiler. This program has a native cobol syntax highlighting, and code completion features. Also, it has a navigable tree view of division, sections, paragraphs etc., which are fully synchronized with the code folding panel.

You may want to check out more software, such as PHPEdit, Aqua Data Studio or BlackBerry JDE, which might be similar to OpenCobolIDE.

Since October 2018 I have been using the OpenCobolIDE environment from a download on 27/10/2018 of the 4.7.6_setup file. My understanding then was that the Cobol version was not the latest from GnuCobol. I notice that the documentation is noting version 3, so has there been an upgrade of the Cobol compiler since 2018.
One other querry, as I have recently been trying the screen section facility but I keep getting a message that no redirection is allowed. What does that mean?
