Structured Programming in COBOL--the Current Options

J. M. Triance
1980 Computer journal  
The problems of writing structured programs in COBOL as defined by the Current Standard and by CODASYL are examined.  ...  Four versions of structured COBOL supported by preprocessors are presented and some criteria for judging preprocessor are proposed.  ...  Acknowledgements The author is grateful to the referee and members of the BSI COBOL Working Group for their valuable comments on the first draft of the paper.  ...

The management of end user computing

John F. Rockart, Lauren S. Flannery
1983 Communications of the ACM  
Significant issues for IS management with regard to these "amateur" programming groups include the definition of the documentation, the standards, the educational materials, and the controls necessary  ...  One can think of several other controls, such as a mandating of the use of standards modules.  ...

R. Lammel, C. Verhoef
2001 IEEE Software  
Acknowledgments Thanks to Terry Bollinger, Prem Devanbu, Capers Jones, Tom McCabe, Harry Sneed, Ed Yourdon, and the reviewers for their substantial contributions.  ...  However, because of a change in the 1974 standard, the same code compiled with a Cobol/370 compiler displays the output "IEEE " with a trailing space, which is left justified.  ...  Capers Jones mailed us that "for a significant number of applications with Y2K problems, the compilers may no longer be available either because the companies that wrote them have gone out of business  ...
