[open-cobol-list] Request For Comments - Driver Program

I would like to put into CVS a mini driver program equivalent
to MF's "cobrun" and ACU's "runcbl".
This would appear in a new directory "bin".

At the moment I am using the name "cobcrun".
Anybody got suggestions/objections or anything else
regarding the name ?

Here's the minimal source -

#include        <stdio.h>
#include        <libcob.h>
main (int argc, char **argv)
        int (*func)();
        if ( argc <= 1 ) {
                fprintf(stderr, "Number of parameters incorrect\n");
                return 1;
        cob_init (argc - 1, &argv[1]);
        func = cob_resolve (argv[1]);
        if (func == NULL) {
                cob_call_error ();
        return func();

This is very useful as it allows a complete application to be compiled as modules.
(You do not need to figure out what's a main program and what's a module)

The looks like this :

bin_PROGRAMS = cobcrun
cobcrun_SOURCES = cobcrun.c
AM_CFLAGS = -Wall -Wwrite-strings -Wmissing-prototypes -Wno-format-y2k
cobcrun_CFLAGS = $(AM_CFLAGS) $(COBC_CFLAGS) -I$(top_srcdir)
cobcrun_LDADD = $(COBC_LIBS) $(top_builddir)/lib/libsupport.a \

If there are no objections/other suggestions, I will put bin/cobcrun.c into CVS. The configure/make infrastructure will come later as I have a later version of libtools than that used for CVS; so the autoconf/automake/aclocal is generating everything
fresh with a whole bunch of differences that I have to check through.
