The tiny COBOL project is a COBOL compiler being actively developed by members of the free software community. It generates GNU assembler code, thus requires the GNU assembler and linker programs to create an executable binary. The long term goal is to produce a COBOL compiler which is ANSI COBOL 85 compliant, or as close as possible to it. In order to better integrate the compiler with the Linux OS environment, the compiler has the following capabilities using COBOL language extensions:

  • Read from standard input and write to standard output/error.
  • Read command line parameters.
  • Read environmental parameters.
  • Set a file name at run time.
  • Set a program return code.
