Basic COBOL Programming

The basic COBOL application programming class provides the student an opportunity to exercise a number of programming techniques using the COBOL programming language. COBOL has been widely used to develop commercial applications and is still in wide use in a number of large organizations today.

The class covers the following:

  • Use of structured programming techniques to develop COBOL programs

  • Design, coding, and testing of COBOL programs that

    • Move data in storage

    • Edit both input and output data

    • Use arithmetic operations (add, subtract, multiply, divide) on data

    • Use input/output operations

    • Involve the use of control break techniques

    • Involve the use of table processing techniques

    • Sort data using bubble sort and COBOL sorting

    • Perform internal subroutines (paragraphs)

    • Call external subroutines

  • The following COBOL statements will be covered and used in the class

    • MOVE

    • ADD, SUBTRACT, MULTIPLY and DIVIDE

    • COMPUTE

    • IF... THEN....ELSE

    • PERFORM

    • PERFORM VARYING

    • CALL

    • SEARCH

 

A number of programming projects are assigned to give the student ample opportunity to design, code, and test structured COBOL programs that use multidimensional arrays, I/O, math operations, searches, and sorts.
