This is an online COBOL tutorial. The intended use of this text, is as a self study material. To have the full use of this material, you need to have access to a
COBOL compiler. The samples and the model answers in this tutorial have been compiled using compilers from Micro Focus and the PERCobol-compiler from Synkronix.
The material is organised in an incremental fashion: It is strongly recommended that you work your way through the chapters, the way they are numbered.
The exercises are based on the knowledge that is presented in the current and the preceding chapters.
This tutorial is aimed at COBOL beginners. This Cobol programming tutorial teaches the basics of the COBOL programming language for anyone
who knows a little bit about computers and prehaps has some knowledge about another procedural progamming language such as C, BASIC or Pascal.
