Someone had asked a while back about freecobol compilers. I thought GNU
had one, since they do have a fortran compiler.
I searched google, and while I did not look too deeply into it,I did
find some links:
I work in an office with about 50 cobol programmers, and I myself
started as a cobol programmer. If there was a way for this plugin to
communicate with an IBM mainframe That would be awesome. (simple upload
and download would be sufficient since we have compilers on the
mainframe). Just having a modern editor for cobol is great idea!
Cevela MX COBOL implements ANSI-74 COBOL with some features from ANSI-85, namely "initialize", "end-if" and "end-perform", and ISO 1989:2002, namely the screen section. It is a Windows compiler that generates C code which can be compiled with Turbo C 2.01. It is primarily intended as a tool for learning the COBOL language.
