   You caught me out a little here.  ;)   It seems I've been using "outside 
the API" features of some of the innards of the OpenCOBOL runtime, and 
exactly as it should, changes to the compiler broke this example.

   I'm not sure where you got your copy of the ocgtk.c, but I've posted a 
version (that I used to genny the screenshots for the FAQ) with fixes (deemed 
temporary, as I think there may be safer more "published" ways to get at the 
OpenCOBOL global pointer than this quick hack) to

the two files being
and using tectonics of

cobc -c `pkg-config --cflags gtk+-2.0` ocgtk.c
cobc -x -W -debug `pkg-config --libs gtk+-2.0` gtkhello.cob ocgtk.o

Just so you know ... I've moved off this GTK in C wrapper project in favour of 
the the much easier Vala wrappers.  I've been meaning to add the sources to 
the FAQ under the Vala section.  Vala is a C-sharp syntax language that 
generates C (just like OC), but is written specifically for Glib and GTK.  
The embedded webkit browser sample using Vala and then linking the object 
files to OpenCOBOL was a 5 minute job.

I should have some of the Vala sources orgranized for posting soon.

If you are keen to follow up on GTK in C, a few months back, someone on the 
comp.lang.cobol usenet group was interested in this code sample and may have 
done some nifty things in this area.
