Commas, et al (qs: amount in words in cobol any built in function
Given that commas (and semi-colons) EXCEPT within literals and picture-strings, have ZERO meaning in COBOL, I love doing examples of "valid" (but USELESS) code, e.g 01, aField Pic X Value; Zero,. ... Move; Whatever, of This to, something; of; something-else;. A few vendors do have "extensions" where a co... 13 Aug 2010 20:08
grep'ing CoBOL source
Gentle CLC'ers, I got a couple of puzzles to work on, one technical and the other one business/career like, and I'm pretty sure at least Richard will sign on to the technical and everybody can chime in on the career/tactical one. Goes like this... My shop (about 20-25 developers, and another 20-25 business ... 13 Aug 2010 12:28
Cobol is Dead
Despite Pete frequently proclaiming the death of Cobol someone out there is in search of a trainer. Unfortunately, for me, it is the wrong kind of Cobol: http://www.cwjobs.co.uk/JobSearch/JobDetails.aspx?jobid=48202373 ... 13 Aug 2010 10:17
persisting Object Refences in COBOL
I recently wrote a COBOL .DLL that is designed to remain resident and be shared. It is written in compliance with the rules for Dynamic Program Linkage in a Fujistu environment. Basically, this means you provide an Entry file which equates entry points with .dlls and the COBOL RTS then uses this file to determ... 13 Aug 2010 02:45

G'day everyone. I'm a list-lurker. Well, not entirely. I have built open-cobol 1.1 on MingGW and Cygwin quite recently and have attempted to reacquaint myself with COBOL. It's been about 20 years since I did anything serious with the language. Aa-a-anyway, I've been responding to some of the programming tas... 10 Aug 2010 12:27

New to COBOL
The book I am using for my class is "COBOL: From Micro to Mainframe (3rd Edition)." A lot of people didn't seem to like the book according to the Amazon.com review. What is the difference between A margin and B margin? Here is an example of some code: FD STUDENT-FILE RECORD CONTAINS 43 CHARACTERS D... 10 Aug 2010 12:27

Pete Dashwood wrote: During the last few hundred years the criminal justice system has made major advances, but there are still criminals and much remains to be done.

New to COBOL
Yes, believe it or not they still teach COBOL at my school. I am totally lost in my class and have no idea what anything is or how COBOL is structured. The book we are using is terrible at explaining to a beginner how to program. If anyone can point me in the right direction in learning COBOL it would be greatl... 2 Aug 2010 16:57
