IBM Gets Cobol

Adding momentum to its campaign to get Cobol on micros, Micro Focus has launched High Performance Level II Cobol on the IBM PC and XT.

H/P Level II Cobol has facilities that are specific to the PC in much the same way as Personal Cobol (issue 47) but where that product works at the source code level, the latest Micro Focus launch is a compiler: it includes a native code generator that increases the speed of execution.

The price of such performance is £1,250 to new users, and the version for the PC is available now from Micro Focus on 0635 32646.
