A free COBOL compiler
GnuCOBOL (formerly OpenCOBOL) is a free COBOL compiler. cobc translates COBOL source to executable using intermediate C, designated C compiler and linker. OpenCOBOL 1.1 became GNU Cobol 1.1 in 2013. GnuCOBOL 2.2 is the latest, version 3.0 is on its way. A programmer's guide, by Gary Cutler and Vincent Coen, is indexed at https://open-cobol.sourceforge.io together with more documentation. OpenCOBOL was written by Keisuke Nishida and Roger While, from 2001 to 2012. GnuCOBOL is also authored by Simon Sobisch, Ron Norman, Edward Hart, Sergey Kashyrin, Dave Pitts and Brian Tiffin.

All in, COBOL
COBOL Utilities Project collects free and open-source COBOL utilities, libraries, and test suites, which are independent of any specific COBOL compiler. COBOL-UP supports free and open development. A teamwork discussion group has been established. Threads will be focused, the forum open to any and all COBOL. Developers are encouraged to signal interest in write permissions, as this will be an open to all, COBOL utility project. Mainframe, mid-range, Mac, PC, Hercules, Raspberry. Signal interest, we'll set you up with some (vetted) file, distribution and communication space. Wildcat, GnuCOBOL, Micro Focus, Elastic, RainCode, IBM, Tiny COBOL, all the others, all in. COBOL-UP
Unit test framework for COBOL.
Parse, analyze and -- most importantly -- use COBOL data definitions. This gives you access to COBOL data from Python programs. Write data analyzers, one-time data conversion utilities and Python programs that are part of COBOL systems. Really.
PCS (Pest Control Suite) is written in Microfocus COBOL (Workbench) 3.2. The goal of this project is to convert it to Opencobol or TinyCobol. The original GPL release date for the software was March 1st, 2009.
The vs Cobol screen handler converts screens defined in a simple meta-language (using standard text files) to Cobol sourcecode which can be accessed using PERFORM statements.
