So my problem is this. I have eclipse 3.1 on my PC (which is NOT a problem icon_lol.gif ) and I need to do some work on COBOL. Now I downloaded the plug-in for COBOL from the eclipse.org site. The plug-in is a .zip file and when u extract it, you'll get two folders marked "features" and "plugins". The contents of these have been copied to the eclipse folder (ok "directory" if u INSIST!!!) and after that I started Eclipse.

Now the problem is How do I get into COBOL perspective? When I try to create a COBOL project nothing happens. I am using Fujistu cobol compiler (wincob). Can someone help me on this please!? icon_smile.gif
