|Full description=The Cobol for GCC project is an effort to create a free Cobol compiler, compliant with the Cobol 85 standard, that will be integrated into the GNU Complier Collection (GCC). The project is not yet finished. Current status is that roughly 73,000 lines of code have been written since March 1999. The following tasks have already been done:

* Parsing and lexical analysis for the COBOL nucleus

Some code has been generated via the GCC back end, including most of the data division. Approximately 7,000 lines of code remain to be written.
