You are absolutely right, COBOL is not dead, and I don't see it
going away for a few years at least. And certainly, the job that
it does, it does well, but that does not mitigate the pain and
anguish that comes from having to code large COBOL systems.8^)
Whoever wants to work on COBOL is more than welcome to, I will not
question their choice, but I know that it is not for me, and I am
happier working with things like Perl. just my $0.02.
