Posted: Fri Mar 24, 2006 9:05 pm Post subject: Which Compiler to use
I am a beginner , studying COBOL. I would like to compile my programs on my home pc. I see that there are a lot of free compilers online. Can anyone suggest me which compiler to download and use for my practice? _________________ Laku

You can convert the MS-WORD docs to normal .TXT files. Also, you need to follow the rules to achieve a successful compilation. It is something like having the divisions start in the 8th column and procedure division statements in 12th column etc. You can refer to any cobol manuals for these details.
