COBOL - Bashing

It's been going on for years

"It is unlikely that COBOL will be around
at the end of next year"

anonymous member of the CODASYL COBOL Short Range Committee, 1959


"The teaching of COBOL should be
made a criminal offense"

Professor Edsgar W. Djikstra, Holland May 1982


for those who, at one time may have thought the former, consider this

"COBOL 2000: It's not your father's COBOL"

Dr. Elliot Cobol, earlier today
