Re: Please suggest me the software in which I can Compile and Run my cobol pgm2013-01-23T21:23:15Z in response to SystemAdminThere are indeed COBOL compilers for home pc (at least AIX, Linux, Windows, *BSD, possibly OSx).
You don't mention from whence your COBOL program came (z/OS, textbook, friend,...), nor the language level needed (ANSI 85, 2002), so evaluating which might suite you best is neigh on impossible.
The hit to your budget will vary, and significantly, depending upon your need (business, toy, school), COBOL and development skillset, and your general System Administration skillset.
