Hi all, is there software that i can install on a PC or Mac that will allow me to code, compile and run COBOL programs for practice?


Thanks

Google is your friend. Googling free cobol returns about 1,810,000 hits and one of the first is http://www.freebyte.com/programming/cobol/ which talks about a number of free COBOL compilers that you can install on your PC (maybe some on the MAC as well). I have used GnuCOBOL (previously OpenCOBOL) and it is quite good at replicating z/OS Enterprise COBOL.
