Cobol Compiler

Posted 13 October 2007 - 08:33 AM

I will probably be taking a class on programming in COBOL sometime in the near future and would like to get an idea of how it works...I have a couple of websites for tutorials and such, but I need a compiler to try the code on...anyone know of any good COBOL compilers for win32 (preferably that work with Vista 32bit)

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

You can try Fujitsu's Cobol V3 compiler which is free to students (just got to fill in a form to download). It is an old school program and I am not sure how Vista will handle it. It should be fine but you never know.

I have also included a great site for a tutorial on this compiler including how to compile cobol programs etc.

Fujitsu Cobol V3 Compiler Download (fill out form)

Fujitsu Cobol V3 Tutorial Site - Be sure to look at the compiling/linking section

Hope it works for you. Enjoy! :)
