From the Back Cover
The third edition of COBOL: from Micro to Mainframe/Fujitsu Version provides a text that covers all basic COBOL elements. It comes with version 4.0 of the Fujitsu compiler, editor, and project manager. The examples and supporting text have been thoroughly updated to emphasize the use of the Fujitsu compiler, which embodies the proposed features of the COBOL 2000 standard. The software also incorporates a project manager that allows more than one program to be built and linked together at a time.
The text includes additional chapters on the Year 2000 problem, structured programming and design, debugging, subprograms, table processing, sorting, screen I/O, sequential file maintenance, indexed files, and object-oriented COBOL. Programming tips are provided throughout that go beyond the syntactical rules of COBOL in order to make programs easier to maintain and more efficient to run. The Fujitsu version teaches programming as it is practiced in the real world with sample projects that reflect Year 2000 considerations.
