Uncompiled cobol code is always plateform independent.

COBOL 97 includes  object-oriented features. Like the C++ programming language.

I have used the MicroFocus Cobol Compiler (and I believe ther are others) on UNIX and Windows. I have also seen Cobol on HP 3000 and Vax. Programming Languages are platform independent if there are compilers.
