Short Take: Merant releases Cobol for Red Hat

Merant has released Cobol programming tools for Red Hat Linux, the company said. Cobol is a decades-old programming language popular among businesses, but Merant wants existing customers to be able to more easily bring programs written in Cobol to newer hardware, the company said. Merant has licensed its software to every company in the Fortune 100, the company said.
