When I was in college, we were required to take 3 semesters of COBOL programming. While I have not used COBOL since I left college, many of my colleagues have.
We are constantly told there is a large body of COBOL code that needs to be maintained; whether that is true or not is not for me to say.
I will, however, make this observations: at the top of the banner for CodeProject is an advertisement for Visual COBOL. If COBOL is a 'dead language', why is there a Visual instance of it? Why would a for-profit company create a product for which there should be no market?
