COBOL/2: The next generation in applications programming

by R. Sales
IBM COBOL/2 is a new compiler and debugger system for the Personal System/2® product range developed by Micro Focus Group PLC of the United Kingdom. In this paper, Robert Sales, a software development manager for Micro Focus who was instrumental in creating the COBOL/2 system, describes how COBOL/2 breaks new ground in providing support for many disparate COBOL language dialects and standards, as well as in providing support for OS/2 on the Personal Computer architecture.
