Does anyone keep track of the average cost of a COBOL compile in their site?  I recall, back in the 90's, when people were calculating Y2K projections, the analysts were saying the average cost of a COBOL compile was somewhere around 8 to 10 US$. 

With the price of MIPS steadily decreasing over the past 15 years, I was wondering if that price has gone down.

 



Software/Hardware used:
IBM zSeries mainframe, IBM Enterprise COBOL compiler

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

When looking at development cost, the hardware cost is insignificant. The manpower cost is the one that concerns us.
