I have built a tool that can be used to export C++ libraries to other languages. I’m wondering if that is something that would be interesting to the COBOL community. The tool could be used to gradually convert parts of COBOL to C++ or to integrate newly written code with legacy systems.
Would it be helpful to seamlessly call C++ from COBOL?
How do you usually integrate with C++? Are there any particularly painful things surrounding this?
Would you or your company pay for something like this?
Tolc has been used successfully in government-related optimization projects as well as in academia. Here is a link to the documentation, and if you want to sign up for future updates, you can do so here.
Would be very interested in what you think!
