Here are all the COBOL files this site has available for you to download. To download
the file, simply right click the "Download" link of the game/program and select
"Save As". Or you can always just click on it, and if your browser doesn't attempt
to open it in itself, you should get a similar prompt. Files are by me. No guarantees
on how well they work.
Wry COBOL (02/2019) (Linux / Win)
Here is the downloads for the Wry port of the original Qbasic release of Wry. This version of Wry
is written using GnuCOBOL so it can be compiled on almost any platform. The data files for this project
were generated using the Wry Parser Java application I created which reads in the original Qbasic source
file and outputs the data files used by this application.
All four episodes are available and it does not suffer from the stack over flow issues that original game
did. Currently sources and releases are hosted on GitHub (links below). There is also a .deb package if
you are using a 64-bit debian based distro.
If compiling from source, you will need to download the data files below if you don't plan on running the
Wry Parser application to create them. The data directory in the zip file gets placed in the same directory
as you wry-cobol executable file.
