pretty useless question ...
why not ask directly what You want help about ?

and, REMEMBER, a YES/NO question usually deserves/receives a YES/NO answer :ugeek:

When I tell somebody to RTFM or STFW I usually have the page open in another tab/window of my browser,
so that I am sure that the information requested can be reached with a very small effort 8-)

As Enrico said -- answer is Yes and No. Yes, I've downloaded it but No as have not worked with it, to comment much any further.


Thanks,

Yeah, I realized that it might sound bizarre but I was thinking which cobol compiler I should use for practice at home and asked it. Hope, it make sense now.

Did you try googling for 'cobol compilers'? You can cut down that list by googling for 'free cobol compilers'. The zCOBOL compiler is incomplete in its support for keywords and abbreviations of keywords. I had to write my own macro to permit the use of the abbreviation 'ID'.

Try GNU COBOL on Sourceforge.net, where you will also find help and support for it. There is a configuration setting (ibm) to make it more IBM COBOL-like.
