Beginning COBOL for Programmers is a comprehensive, sophisticated tutorial and modular skills reference on the COBOL programming language for established programmers. This book is for you if you are a developer who would like to—or must—add COBOL to your repertoire. Perhaps you recognize the opportunities presented by the current COBOL skills crisis, or are working in a mission critical enterprise which retains legacy COBOL applications. Whatever your situation, Beginning COBOL for Programmers meets your needs as an established programmer moving to COBOL.

Beginning COBOL for Programmers includes comprehensive coverage of ANS 85 COBOL features and techniques, including control structures, condition names, sequential and direct access files, data redefinition, string handling, decimal arithmetic, subprograms, and the report writer. The final chapter includes a substantial introduction to object-oriented COBOL.

Benefiting from over one hundred example programs, you’ll receive an extensive introduction to the core and advanced features of the COBOL language and will learn to apply these through comprehensive and varied exercises. If you've inherited some legacy COBOL, you’ll be able to grasp the COBOL idioms, understand the constructs, and recognize what's happening in the code you’re working with.

Today’s enterprise application developers will find that COBOL skills open new—or old—doors, and this extensive COBOL reference is the book to help you acquire and develop your COBOL skills.

The other day, I read that something like 60% of enterprise code is still in COBOL, simply because it's been too difficult moving legacy systems to new platforms. That caught my attention and I got this to find out more. This is the newest book I've seen for COBOL. That's important not because COBOL has changed (not in a decade now) but because programming has changed and the coder's perspective has changed. Coughlan does a fantastic job of helping you understand both the computers and the programming tasks that COBOL was designed for. This mental model of how the first machines were programmed in COBOL makes it a lot easier to understand some of the things that would otherwise seem very strange. If you have a programming background and want to understand COBOL legacy code well enough to see what it is doing and tinker with it, this is a great book for getting up to speed.

This is one of a very few selections of texts on COBOL. As an experienced C/C++ programmer, Java, et al, the chapter discussions and examples make perfect sense to me. Much of the key words and examples for use clearly cross-over into C/C++.

I was able to email the author for further information regarding COBOL, and he was very quick to respond to my questions.

Overall, this is an excellent introduction to COBOL, IMHO.

Would be cooler if it also had SQL database interaction with it.

This is a good beginner's COBOL manual. It lays out the rules coherently.

Brings back great memory's.......

Got me coding again....

I have nearly 2 decades of professional COBOL experience, including programming for Wal-Mart in its early days, and later for The University of Tennessee. I continue to teach COBOL as well. This is an excellent text for anyone with a basic understanding of programming. As noted by the author, this is not intended to be a first look at programming -- it is presumed that you are looking at COBOL as an additional language. As an instructor, I am planning to adopt this as a textbook. As a professional, I am happy to add this to my reference bookshelf. I applaud the author for providing such a valuable and concise resource for younger programmers who wake up and smell the coffee... the demand for COBOL programmers will only continue to grow, and those who learn it will find that they have gained an advantage in the programming market. Those with their heads in the sand will continue to repeat the urban legend that "COBOL is dead". Those with brains will get this book and mark a course for the future.

2 years ago I was looking for a good source to refresh my knowledge in COBOL programming, after having programmed extensively working at Amdocs about 15 years ago, and wanting to go back to it as a senior programmer in one of the major insurance companies.
I found it very difficult to find a book!
In my search on the web I found Michael Coughlan's site, which was very helpful.
And now he has published the book - finally!
It is comprehensive and effective -
giving you the basics + examples + exercises and explaining in a readable, fluent way.
I find it a great source, both for programmers looking to go into COBOL programming, and as a reference for those of us currently programming in COBOL.
I'm a beginner with Cobol but have experience with other programming languages. I was searching for recently written book covering Cobol programming but had a hard time finding one. I was very happy when I came across Beginning Cobol for Programmers. Beginning Cobol for Programmers gives a great introduction to people that haven't been working with Cobol before. It explains Cobol programming in a simple way and gives a lot of example code. It also have a lot of material to further the knowledge in Cobol. I really enjoy the book and would recommend it.
