It was an era. Everything evolution in live.

I did 8 years in cobol programming, a little bit hard to code, but you get use to.

No complaint

Hi,

<Donning fire-proof suit>
I did a year's worth of COBOL at a large bank.

I would rather walk around companies selling sandwiches than code in COBOL again!

I used to be a fair 'C' programmer, with a touch of Pascal / APL and assembler (even wrote a floating point library for an 8087), and can write a tidy bit of PL/SQL ...

In all the large corporates I have worked in, the Cobol departments have been incredibly structured/rigis (adding a column to a table took 6 working days, AFTER rrhe request had been filled out in triplacte and authorused ...)
</end of flame>

Oweson Flynn

Rachel,
Whats wrong with COBOL. I programmed with it in the early 70's and last I heard the "root" module I write is still in use today(payroll for a Fortune 100 company). Later in life I programmed in INFORMIX 4GL on a DataPoint server. It was replaced with an IBM 360 and they never got the application to run as fast as the original.

hm, watch your back at IOUGA next year Joe :)

I am up there amongst the more "seasoned" members of this list.

I even (sh, don't tell anyone) programmed in COBOL.
