POCTB - Pipers Open Cobol ToolBox is/will be a set of tools i am going to make for OpenCobol, a free COBOL compiler.

Right now i am working on a preprocessor for MySql and a simple, TSO-linke GUI, which is supposed to make it easier to compile and run programs, manage program sources and copybooks, view output and such.

The preprocessor will interpret sql commands between the keywords EXEC SQL and END-EXEC and translate them into COBOL calls to a simple API for MySql (cobmysqlapi.c), which was posted in the forum of OpenCobol earlier.

I will post more, when i have more working stuff, right now one test program, which reads all records of a table, deletes them, insert new ones and reads them again, is working.
