Probably not hard at all -- I can't imagine a cobol compiler/runtime/ 
executable needing anything in HP/UX that isn't in Centos (or any  
other Linux for that matter).  The bigger problem is getting the COBOL  
vendor to port to the version of Linux you want, Centos in this case.

I have not, but we do use AcuCOBOL version 4 from AcuCorp which was  
recently bought by MicroFocus (they are up to version 8 now: http://www.microfocus.com/products/extend/
