Jim sent an announcement to the Gcc mailing last month. It got a couple of mentions in the Open Source Web-space. Not exactly silence but only a beginning.
gcobol works. Stay tuned in. Work on getting
gcobol to pass the basic CVVS-85 (NIST) COBOL test suite is going well. Jim, Bob, and the rest of us are proud of the work to date. Symas looks forward to late 2022 or 2023 when a more substantial announcement can be made.
