Cobol compiler for VSCode

I am a beginner and I’m trying to learn cobol using VSCode, I would like to know if I need to write JCL code for every cobol program I create or the is a compiler I can install to compile my programs?

Hi Govern,

We have used the GnuCOBOL compiler with success in VSCode.
You can find it here:

I will also recommend the IBM Z Open Editer, it is available as an extension to VSCode, it provides syntax highlighting for COBOL.
