Hello,

1. Search on "free cobol compilers" in google.
2. Use some simulators such as CArealia, but it's expensive.
3. Try with herculeus.

Hi Anuj,

I believe you might mean CA-Realia. When my group used it, it was a COBOL developer's workbench.

Quote:
CA-Realia II Workbench
Company: Computer Associates
Desc: This is a mainframe-compatible COBOL application development environment on the PC which includes a high-speed 32-bit COBOL compiler, an integrated GUI editor, a CICS development environment and a choice of complete life cycle management tools.
OS: Windows NT/XP/2000/9x

I don't know if CA still markets this or not.

Hi Dick,

Well yes - spell check time for me... icon_redface.gif

I believe it's still in the market. I used it last in 2005 however there are some firms here in india who are using this to train their "new comers" not sure how latest their license is though.
