Selecting the best approach to supporting both graphical and character systems is very important and well worth the time invested. In general terms, there are three possible approaches to this problem. You can use ACUCOBOL-GT with any of these approaches. These approaches can be summarized as follows:
This approach uses separate programs for graphical and character systems.
This approach uses one program with a single user interface that runs under both graphical and character systems.
This approach uses one program that includes two user interface implementations, one for graphical systems and one for character systems.
