When you buy KOBOL you get a license for a single developer, but the price is so low that you could buy about 100 copies before you get to a single user price from other companies.
What else is great about KOBOL? How about an integrated IDE for code development and project management? We\'ve also got syntax highlighting, integrated compiler with status window, integrated CVS support, sophisticated text editor, code completion and best of all it is COBOL.
Not only that, it is also Object Oriented COBOL. With KOBOL you can make the move to new platforms like Linux and Windows (for you mainframe types) and preserve your hard earned knowledge of business systems and how they work. With the very low price of KOBOL you take very little risk, but the potential pay off is huge.
KOBOL also has a 100% success rate with the NIST COBOL85 test suite, however Segmentation and DEBUGGING declaratives have not been implemented.
COBOL programmers have been ignored and taken advantage of with high priced tools for long enough. Now you can really take a step into the world that has been passing you by. With KOBOL you get free lifetime upgrades to the base product. As an example of something we are thinking about that wouldn\'t be in the base product is support for building Qt based applications.
