Vishwa,

Its all about which version of COBOL is being used... As far as my knowledge goes... MF COBOL or MicroFocus COBOL is used in Linux... You could do a search based on this ...

the link was for a list of COBOL resources,
You will have to find out a bit more by Yourself ,
for example by scrolling a bit down the page, clicking on the COBUG ( COBol User Group )
http://www.cobug.com/cobug/docs/tutorials0032.html
and go on from there
