Does anyone know any free Cobol editors?

I'm using Zeus lite and Crimson editor. The syntax highlighting in these both editors are not the best ones, hard to read the code. I like Rational Developers LPEX editor but the connection to the school's server drops every 1o min so I can't really use it from home.

Hello,

You might try here:
http://www.cobug.com/cobug/docs/editors0036.html

If you intend to run your code on a mainframe, you will need a way to upload/download from that system (unless Rational Developer will do this reliably).
Hope this helps,
d.sch.

You can also try SPFLite which is like the ISPF editor on the mainframe but enhanced. You have to make your own syntax colouring file but instructions to create are included.

Also TextPad - you can download syntax colouring files for that - but I modify mine - I like grey comments so that they do not stand out cluttering my brain.
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.
Regards
