COBOL programming - part 1

Objectives

The training COBOL Programming is composed of 2 separate courses: in Part 1 the participant becomes familiar with the basic COBOL programming techniques, in Part 2 the more advanced topics are treated.

At the end of Part 1, the participant:

  • knows the basic COBOL syntax;
  • is able to develop, debug and execute COBOL programs.

This course is also available as a combined course (Parts 1 and 2), see COBOL programming: fundamentals course.

Main topics

  • Basic structure of a COBOL program:
  • 4 divisions • sections, paragraphs and sentences.
  • compile • link-edit • execution.
  • Variables, computing and data editing:
  • detailed discussion on the declaration of variables.
  • special instructions on calculations.
  • data editing.
  • Conditional programming:
  • statements that might influence the flow of the program.
  • PERFORM • IF ... ELSE • EVALUATE.
  • Treatment of files:
  • use of files in COBOL (input / output) • error handling.
 

Intended for

Programmers who are going to write simple programs in COBOL. For a more detailed knowledge of all the possibilities of the COBOL language (advanced file processing, COBOL tables, working with submodules, ...), we refer to Part 2 of this training (COBOL programming - part 2).

Background

Programming experience (Programming fundamentals). Some familiarity with an MVS/ISPF environment is desirable ( ISPF/PDF basics). You can test yourself to see if you have enough ISPF background by printing and filling in the self-test (PDF file - 26 KB).

Training method

Classroom instruction. 70% of the time is spent on programming exercises.

Course leader

Peter Vanroose.

Duration

3 days.

Schedule

No public sessions are currently scheduled. We will be pleased to set up an on-site course or to schedule an extra public session (in case of a sufficient number of candidates). Interested ? Please contact ABIS.

Reviews

     
Veel informatie gekregen maar in een enorm korte tijd. De basis is nog niet voldoende behandeld naar mijn mening. Vele van ons hebben moeite met deze moeilijkheid (, )
     
Prima, voor iemand zonder mainframe ervaring zou wat meer uitleg over terminal gebruik prittig zijn. (, )
     
helder, docent legt ook heel duidelijk uit (, )
     
excellent instructor (, )
     
goed, alleen wordt er teveel theorie in te weinig tijd behandeld. (, )
     
goede cursus. Veel stof behandeld - goede oefeningen (, )
     
goed, het feit dat het zelfstudie was vormde zeker geen probleem, het materiaal en begeleiding waren er zeker op afgestemd (, )
     
Veel geleerd en ook beoefend, snelheid was voor mij beter als de eerste cursus. Blijft soms wel lastig schakelen, maar kan ook door de ruimte komen dat je snel wat suffer wordt (, )
     
Goede basis voor programmeren in cobol (, )
