I have an INI file I'd like to parse with COBOL (specifically GNU COBOL). It's not an option for it to be in a different format so I'm wondering if there are any good resources for learning how to write a parser in COBOL. submitted by /u/yankdevil [visit reddit] [comments ..read more

COMPUTE-RTN. READ GRADE AT END MOVE 'Y' TO EOF4. READ STUD. IF GRA-STUD-NUM IS EQUAL TO STU-STUD-NUM PERFORM COMPUTE2-RTN UNTIL EOF5 = 'Y' ELSE PERFORM BREAK3-RTN OPEN INPUT STUD OPEN INPUT GRADE. READ STUD. READ GRADE. ​ COMPUTE2-RTN. COMPUTE AVERAGE = (GRA-MID-GRADE + GRA-FINAL-GRADE) / 2.

I can't make "IF GRA-STUD-NUM IS EQUAL TO STU-STUD-NUM" work, it just loops forever. I want to compare two variables from different text file and if they're the same ..read more

Decimal point and decimal value truncated

hi! i am currently debugging my COBOL program and i have noticed that as I display a user input (that is an integer with decimal places), the decimal point as well as the tenths decimal place keeps disappearing (for the lack of a better term). here's a visualization: user input: 1500.27 output: 1,5007 note that this is how I have initialized the variables: 05 SAMPLEVAR PIC 9(9)V99. 05 SAMPLEVAR-OUT PIC ZZZ,ZZZ,ZZ9.99. i can't seem to figure out what's wrong. submitted by /u/usereigengrau [visit reddit] [comments ..read more

COBOL PROGRAM LOGIC

LARGEST-RTN. IF T-ENS > L-ENS THEN MOVE T-ENS TO L-ENS MOVE L-NAME TO BNES END-IF. ADD REG-FAC TO PAR-FAC GIVING TOT-FAC. IF TOT-FAC > L-FAC THEN MOVE TOT-FAC TO L-FAC MOVE L-NAME TO FAC END-IF. LARGEST-RTN-END. What could be the possible issue with this program logic, because when I enter a series of inputs once, then do it again, it just moves and prints the inputs in the second iteration and not properly compare it to the inputs at the first. submitted by /u/darkttyu [visit reddit] [comments ..read more

I graduated from college with a BS in Computer Engineering and got hired to be a systems engineer at a company in Idaho despite having zero experience in that field. Lately I’ve been taking this COBOL/mainframe course on Udemy and have been enjoying my time learning about mainframes and how to program in COBOL. But I have a question regarding the field: how difficult is it to get into? At my current employment it’s not easy going up the career ladder with job opportunities or pay raises, and I’m wanting to get into the mainframe field. What do I need to do now to wedge my way in? submitted b ..read more
