  COBOL - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
COBOL is a third-generation programming language, and one of the oldest programming languages still in active use.
COBOL was initially created in 1959 by The Short Range Committee, one of three committees proposed at a meeting held at the Whitehouse on May 28 and 29, 1959, organized by Charles Phillips of the United States Department of Defense (exactly one year after the Zurich ALGOL meeting).
COBOL programs are in use globally in governmental and military agencies, in commercial enterprises, and on operating systems such as IBM's z/OS, Microsoft's Windows, and the Unix/Linux families.

COBOL: Tutte le informazioni su COBOL su Encyclopedia.it
Il COBOL (COmmon Business Oriented Language, ossia "linguaggio comune per applicazioni commerciali") è uno dei primi linguaggi di programmazione ad essere stato sviluppato ed ancora oggi è molto utilizzato.
Il Cobol è un linguaggio ad alto livello di tipo procedurale, orientato allo sviluppo di applicazioni commerciali e per l’elaborazione di grossi volumi di dati; le istruzioni sono molto simili a frasi della lingua inglese ed organizzate in uno schema rigido di struttura composto di sezioni e paragrafi.

Object state in OO COBOL consists of data items (which may be structured) defined in class object or object data divisions, and data defined within methods of class objects or objects.
In OO COBOL, the ability for a data item to contain various objects of different classes means that a method invocation on that data item can be bound to one of many possible methods.
In OO COBOL, an object reference is a value that uniquely identifies an object for the lifetime of the object.
