The Cobol language, in my opinion, is still one of the finest for business applications but this GNUCobol application is absolutely horrible. You may want to use the discussion boards or mailing lists or read the documentation to find out how to use GnuCOBOL to get what you want.

At the time this is written, the compiler is available in source form only that is, you need to compile it yourself. They just fade away. I've done it for a sufficiently long time that I don't even need a compiler in front of me to check my code, which is scary in and of itself.
DoctorKennyG, thank you for your comment. I recently discovered a website that provides an online development server virtual and I installed OpenCobol. Grace hopper doing it, - is again disputed.
Some people used to put hopper as true claimant, and some people used to put alick glennie as true claimant of first compiler writer. Now the US exported blind feminism and feminist political correctness took over the world , and without further debating just on historicity and merits; they proclaimed Grace hopper as the first compiler writer, just because they needed a symbol for geek feminism. No discussion happenned further, and now with political correctness, no one wants to dig deep that who is the correct owner of the title " the first compiler writer?
