The new COBOL compiler offers many features for programmers and applications managers, but it also takes some work to get to use it. This session will tell you everything you need to know to get up and running with Enterprise COBOL version 5.1.
The white paper will discuss what has changed, what is better, and what you will have to change to use the new compiler.
There are a few small source code changes, but most of the changes will be outside your COBOL source code.
Compiler options have changed; some behaviors have changed; some new restrictions have been added; and performance has changed.
