File Extension ACU

.ACU File

File extension: ACU
File type: Intermediate Object File

Notes about the ACU file extension:

To open this file type, a required software must be installed. Without it you only see a Windows message "The following file cannot be opened" (Windows 7) or "How do you want to open this file?" (Windows 10) if you double-click the file. There click on "More apps" and choose a suitable software to view such files on your PC or from email attachments.

The ACU file type is primarily associated with 'ACUCOBOL-GT' by Acucorp, Inc.. Acucorp offers an open systems COBOL, ACUCOBOL-GT, that lets you write a program once, and run it on virtually any operating system platform without recompiling. This is achieved using a pseudocode system. Rather than producing native code for a single platform, our compiler produces a small, independent object that can be placed on any open-systems machine. At runtime, the object is executed by a native runtime executable.
