Baremetal COBOL (proof of concept)

Post by wxwisiasdf »

Hi!

A kernel in COBOL :)

It's not an usable OS by any means, just a toy kernel to prove that COBOL is nice, some drivers are implemented in COBOL, including a minimal PS2 controller initializer and ATAPI drivers.

Maybe I should've targeted itanium instead of x86, eh, anyways here is the code for your enjoyment ;)

Cheers!

Wow, and I thought I was tilting at windmills. I'm impressed.

Lisp programmers tend to seem very odd to outsiders, just like anyone else who has had a religious experience they can't quite explain to others.
