I just bought your book "COBOL Programmer's Notebook" from Borders in Buffalo NY. I was required to buy "COBOL from Micro to Mainframe." I want to tell you that your book is so much better! There is not one person in and of the COBOL classes at BSC that like the book that we had to buy that I know of and I work in the labs so I would know, I think. But I have been telling in person and e-mailing the information and praises about your book to everyone I know! I can't wait untill I go to class to share it with my instructor and a few others in the CIS dept. Do you have the same style books for other languages, C++, HTML, and other CIS applications? Please let me know cause I want them, I am taking a class with SQL, Oracle, using UNIX, and I took and would love a book in C++, and next semister I am taking Visual Basic and HTML. Please let me know what you have and THANK YOU from the deepest regions of my heart and soul!!! You just!
don't know what this book means to me!

COBOL is making a comeback! There's a shortage of COBOL programmers to maintain millions of business-critical COBOL applications -- and to fix critical Y2K bugs. This easy-to-use tutorial/reference is perfect for programmers who want to refresh their COBOL skills -- or learn new ones. COBOL Programmer's Notebook's unique dual-page format places code examples on the right, with annotations and explanations on the left -- perfect for programmers who say "Show me the code and help me figure out the rest." Best-selling author Jim Keogh walks through every important element of COBOL programming, including working with the editor, compiler and linker; variables, constants, operators and expressions; arrays; program control; data structures; data input; I/O; indexed files, printed output and functions. There's a full chapter dedicated specifically to identifying and fixing Y2K problems.
