Well way back in uni I remember that's what they told us - the intent of COBOL was "the non programmer could read the code and understand what it was doing because it was almost like English sentences.

but yeah I know - that's why I added the LOL

but I do remember often the documentation (if any) was a lot shorter then the source code, i.e. one sentance say "calculate, round, and add interest and print as a line on the statement" = about 10 lines of code (20 lines for a junior).

(Then again I've seen people manage even more lines for doing similar things in say c#, and let's not talk about vb)
