At the time, language like Cobol were actually used in so many companies (banks ?).
Having +64K, disk drives and Colour monitor could really be helpfull...

COBOL for me was horrible, even some of the modern forms of the language enforced a standard structure because that language had been going since the 50s when they used Computer Punchcards to write your programs. Early BASIC (1964) probably expected the same, though Forth is another one, and this was even happening when Forth-77 came out!  ???

Though their okay once you now the layout, though they are simply not like BASIC, Pascal, C or whatever modern language where you could put your code anywhere. I think they stuck with this structure because businesses and scientists accepted it and deemed it suitable for presenting a fairly readable language.

* Using the old Amstrad Languages :D   * with the Firmware :P
* I also like to problem solve code in BASIC :)   * And type-in Type-Ins! :D

QuoteThe COBOL specification was created by Grace Murray Hopper during the second half of 1959.  Yes, it's a woman's creation...

Cobol sticked because...
Bank and Financial companies were amongst the bigger user of computers...since the begining.

And there in lies the problem...  ;)

Um... yeah, we did try moving to Gimp but gave up after it crapped out trying to load all those layers in the creative materials :D

Quiche is very nice when done properly, FORTRAN & COBOL is designed for perfectionists & OS/360 is only okay if you're running a series of Office Blocks (what do you think used to run Traffic Lights in the 60s?  ;D ).

Undoubably since it was Grace Hopper's fault for jamming a computer bug into a Harvard Mark I - "A Moth".  ???
