COBOL Interpreter

COBOL Interpreter is a compact and easy to use COBOL interpreter. Currently still under development, this interpreter implements some new language features that are very usefull. One such feature is the DELIMITED WITH option on the OPEN statement. This features allows delimited text files to be read into Group Level Data structures. The parsing of the delimiter is handled automatically when this option is used. Using this feature you can quickly develop simple COBOL data conversion programs to convert data that would normally require manually importing data into a database or spreadsheet product and then exporting the data to a file with the required format. Interpreted COBOL programs are very usefull when interfaces need be built to convert delimited text file data provided by one system to a different file format required by the interfacing system.
