Where did you hear the term "pdf cobol"? I've never heard the term, but then I've only been working with COBOL for 37 years so far.

Your choice of word is pretty unfortunate
googling for PDF COBOL just returned zillions of links to PDF documents about cobol

what about looking searching for the site of the company who provides that fashion of cobol?
cheers

COBOL has been around for more than 50 years. In all that time, it has always been compiled and then the compiled code executed. There are some variations -- for example Open COBOL translates the source into C and then compiles the C code, but as far I know, there has never been a way for "executing the cobol statements differently".

The first issue is that what you show is NOT COBOL. It may be something that gets translated into COBOL (eventually) but it is not COBOL. It sort of looks like some form of RPG but since I do not know RPG and have never worked with it, I cannot say for sure. I can, however, say for absolute certainty that what you showed is not COBOL.

Topic moved since it is not related to COBOL.

Hello,

His name is Enrico - not enric.

You need to use real words not this kiddie chat-room sms-speak. Some of our better helpers have stopped even reading posts that the author is too unprofessional to present properly.

Why do/did you believe this has an\ything to do with cobol?
Hope this helps,
d.sch.
