    I took cobol back when I was in college. It's super easy to learn, 'cause it's almost english pseudo code that compiles. I remember hearing someone say once, "cobol, if you run a spellchecker on your code...it won't find any errors!"

    The hardest thing about cobol is that, unlike other programming languages, it was designed exclusively for business applications (accounting, finance, etc.). So, to be good at it you kinda have to understand business.
