in reply to COBOL vs. Perl

I recognize this. I had a course recently where I learned Cobol. I was constantly thinking. "I can redo everything in Perl and SQL in about the half of the time!"

    Uggh - I took a COBOL class for CS majors my last semester of college. It was instructed by the teacher that taught CGI Progamming with Perl (which I attended a year before). Imagine the utter pointless-ness. When it came time to do the last program - my brain shut down from shear abuse. I took a C instead and graduated a happier man.
