Take advantage of the new COBOL 5 compiler: Migration

White paper


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 and 5.2.


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 many of the changes will be outside your COBOL source code.  

In addition, the different generated code may reveal invalid COBOL coding in your applications that for some reason has not been failing for years but might now fail with COBOL V5.  

Compiler options have changed; some behaviors have changed; some new restrictions have been added; and performance has improved!
