Cobol, Programming C
Name: Eagle Eye
Date: Around 1993
What is the Cobol language primarily used for? Would you suggest
taking this class after a Pascal course, or am I repeating myself?
Cobol WAS primarily used in the business community to program
database type services, but it is really on its way out. You should really
look at C and object orientated C. These are THE languages, especially in
science, along with FORTRAN (mostly math and science only). I really
recommend C, it is the natural step up from Pascal.
