COBOL for GCC?


Hello,

Is there a COBOL compiler for the GCC collection? I have heard several places saying there is, but I haven't been able to find out exactly where to locate it.

Lightbulb cobol for gcc

I have never heard about it When I was still active IN ICt Cobol compiler
where rather expensive.
But there were also COBOL GENERATORS

See the following link for a list of free COBOL tools:

Also there is another refernce in another thread here on which ones to consider and why:
