GnuCOBOL 3.2 MSYS2-UCRT64

Package description

This MSI package provides a 64-bit version of GnuCobol 3.2 compiled with and targeting GCC 13.1 under the MSYS2-UCRT64 environment.

Requirements

Important remark

The installer updates the PATH environment variable so that the compiler (cobc.exe) can be called without giving its full path. However, if any terminal remains open during installation, then no terminal (currently running or newly started) will be made aware of the changes to the PATH variable untill all terminals are first closed.

Testing installation

You can check GnuCOBOL is correctly installed by opening a regular terminal (cmd.exe), and typing:

cobc --info

This should dump GnuCOBOL’s configuration.

You may also try compiling and executing the following “Hello World” program:

       IDENTIFICATION DIVISION.
       PROGRAM-ID. hello.
       PROCEDURE DIVISION.
           DISPLAY "Hello World"
           STOP RUN.

Compile and run with:

cobc -x hello.cob
hello

This should display Hello World.
