Everyone has their own priorities I guess. Open COBOL currently compiles 100% of our 30+Million lines of COBOL application, we have no screen sections, all the UI code is written in C with Curses which is called from COBOL. The only problem keeping us from using OC in anger is that OC does not yet support nested sub programs with global and local variables. To compile any one of the 4000+ application programs that we have, it needs a manual exercise to strip the nested sub programs out, change to pass the globals through the linkage section and compile each sub program up as a seperate cobol program. It all works if this is done but it's a huge effort. So from my point of view, nested sub programs are more important than file IO or screen handling.

So, again, the question is: what can we do to help and speed-up.
