Hello. I have run some checks I have received 31 failed test. I wonder if I could get some help on solving those issues. I have added the logs in it

Hi Danny and welcome to GnuCOBOL.

Your testlog shows a bunch of expected failures (so things the GnuCOBOL developers are aware about, but that aren't implemented / fixed yet) and two "unexpected" failures. When looking at the NEWS file this is because of the environment used - Cygwin should work in general (and the testsuite in general shows it does) but it has two "false positives" that are related in cygwin's posix api translation of "./prog2" or ".\prog2" to ".prog2" (which is obviously wrong).

Patches to adjust the testsuite would be accepted.
If you don't use Cygwin for a lot of other things already it is highly suggested to not use it for GnuCOBOL either - instead use MinGW or MSYS2 based GnuCOBOL binaries (you may even need to do that depending on what you want to do with the generated binaries as you otherwise link to cygwin.dll and need to abide to its license) - those are in general better tested, much more widely used and if you just want to use GnuCOBOL, you can also get "officially blessed" pre-build binary packages from https://arnoldtrembley.com/GnuCOBOL.htm
