I Need A COBOL Compiler
Posted 04 July 2006 - 09:42 AM
I have been searching for a COBOL for compiler for a couple of days but could not find one. There is hand full of compilers which works on Windows 95, 98, NT. I want a compiler which should be compatible with windows xp sp 2. It must have support for ODBC and most importantly it should be free. I would be very thankful if someone fined me one. Bye..

This site gives links to a lot of free compilers, look :
Hope this was helpful ?
Free Cobol Compilers
OpenCOBOL OpenCOBOL is an open-source COBOL compiler. OpenCOBOL implements substantial part of the COBOL 85 and COBOL 2002 standards, as well as many extensions of the existent COBOL compilers. OpenCOBOL translates COBOL into C and compiles the translated code using GCC. You can build your COBOL programs on various platforms, including GNU/Linux, Mac OS X, and Microsoft Windows.
CobCy Free Cobol to C compiler. Cobcy is intended to compile ANSI COBOL sources. The current version does not yet support all the features in the ANSI Cobol specification.
Tiny Cobol Open source Cobol compiler for Windows, Linux, BeOS, FreeBSD.
Cobol for GCC COBOL for GCC is a project to create a COBOL 85 compliant compiler for GNU/Linux and other operating systems, using the GCC (GNU Compiler Collection) code generation framework.

Most of payroll programs on "proprietary" computers (IBM computers, Bull computers, most of huge non-unix computers) are Cobol programs.
I didn't know COBOL was still around (says the kid who used to use Qbasic). What is it used for these days?
Probably your salary will be paid with the payroll printing program being still a cobol program.
Procution Cobol programs are usually some millions of lines of cobol programs, which could cost a lot to be migrated to non-cobol applications.
So, most of times, brand new applications are written in C on Linux Machines. And when old proprietary marchines start being too old, the cobol programs are simply compiled on a new Linux machine.
Hope this helped.
