GnuCOBOL is an Open Source COBOL compiler and you can get the 4.0 source code download

Select the software you need and click on the 'download' link to get it.

This GnuCOBOL compiler is based on the 'trunk' version and for our TIP/ix customers is built with V-ISAM which handles both C-ISAM and VB-ISAM format files.
This is compatible with the ISAM file handler that TIP/ix uses, as well as Microfocus COBOL.

The V-ISAM 2.2 source is available and configure it with the --enable-cisamcompat option to be compatible with TIP/ix.
This (C-ISAM compatible) mode is also able to read/write ISAM files used by either Microfocus COBOL or TIP/ix.
V-ISAM is able to handle both C-ISAM and VB-ISAM format files at run-time.
The V-ISAM 2.2 source code may be downloaded here: download
