Converting ACUCOBOL-GT Applications

With Enterprise Developer you can build, compile and debug ACUCOBOL-GT applications. Certain Compiler directives are provided to enable compatibility with some of ACUCOBOL-GT's language extensions, data files, and other behaviors.

After you have converted your application, you must run, license, and distribute your programs in the same manner as other Micro Focus programs. There is currently no clone of the ACUCOBOL-GT runtime known as wrun32 (Windows) or runcbl (UNIX).

This section describes the ACUCOBOL-GT compatibility features, such as how they are enabled within Enterprise Developer, and also the potential problems you may encounter with some aspects of the converted source code.
