isCOBOL language resource feature in action
The following example uses Hebrew text to illustrate the capabilities of the isCOBOL language resource feature:
It is possible to create a text resource file, RES_iw.properties, containing this text for use with isCOBOL's multilanguage sample program distributed with isCOBOL in the sample\multilanguage folder.
To create the file save the above text into a utf-8 encoded file named "RES_iw.txt" using notepad and then run native2ascii to create a properties file.
native2ascii -encoding utf8 RES_iw.txt RES_iw.properties
Edit the RES_iw.properties file to add the text resource names such as "usr=", "pwd=", etc, to the beginning of each line, and then reference these text resources in the COBOL program. For example, the resulting text resource properties might have the following:
And the COBOL screen section would look like this:
