Common Business Oriented Language (COBOL)

Common Business–Oriented Language (COBOL) is a high-level programming language designed for businesses, company administrative systems, finance, and governments. It is one of the first widely used programming languages developed from the 1959 Conference on Data Systems Languages, a joint undertaking between the private and US governments.

Characteristics of COBOL Programming

Input-Output (disk access) and Loops (formed by PERFORM and GOTO statements) are the two areas of standard COBOL Programming that take the most run-time. Input-Output is the most crucial; nevertheless, it must be a parallel within the code to exploit the I/O parallelism once that is addressed.

Features of COBOL Programming

Popular features of COBOL include simplicity and standardization, business-oriented capabilities, universality, and structure scalability. COBOL is easy to learn and compatible with various vast syntax vocabulary and features a systematic coding style. It is capable of handling vast volumes of data, from simple batch reporting to complex transactions. It has adapted to decades and continues to innovate to meet business change and works across various platforms and devices. COBOL has logical control structures that make it reliable, readable, modifiable, quick to debug, and scale-up across portable platforms.
