Vs Cobol 2 a Guide for Programmers 2ND Edition


Vs Cobol 2 a Guide for Programmers 2ND Edition Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book builds on your COBOL knowledge to quickly teach you everything you need to know about VS COBOL II, the IBM 1985 COBOL compiler for MVS shops:
-- how to code the language elements that are new in VS COBOL II...and what language elements you can't use anymore
-- CICS considerations
-- how to use the debugger
-- how the compilers features can make your programs compile and run more efficiently
-- guidelines for converting to VS COBOL II (that includes coverage of the conversion aids IBM supplies)

So if you're in a shop that's already using VS COBOL II, you'll learn how to benefit from the language elements and features the compiler has to offer. If you aren't yet working in VS COBOL II, you'll learn how to write programs now that will be easy to convert later on. And if you're a manager, you'll get some practical ideas on how to convert as painlessly as possible.

"VS COBOL II has helped a great deal with our conversion from OS/VS COBOL 2.4 to MVS VS COBOL II Release 3.0". — D.M., Senior Programmer/Analyst, Los Osos, CA
