Cobol/Cobol vs. Microfocus Cobol

Cobol Micro focus is very specific in the way that the tools used are somehow complex.

You need to have experience on it before working for customers.

Microfocus also implemented specific functions which make its compiler different than Ansi Standard. Whjich mean that migration is sometimes hard and complex.

I specialize in IBM z/OS COBOL and MicroFocus OCDS and Server Express non-OOP. Design, coding and performance oriented questions. Also linking to IBM Assembler from COBOL. Because the rules change with version, please state language level, version and platform environment. See CICS for questions about CICS.


Over 35 years working with COBOL on multiple platforms and OS.
