Cobol for GCC / News: Recent posts

Build under GCC now working.

With 18,000 lines of code written. I am now integrating with GCC. I have a skeleton framework done, and the program now builds within the GCC build framework. So I have now uploaded selected parts of GCC V4.3 so the whole thing builds. This means the CVS download is now about 140mb.
