Wow, I never thought I’d use these skills again. It’s been a few years, but it’s burned in - I spent well over 10 years coding and maintaining COBOL applications - primarily business accounts packages and stock control / production control, and POS systems.

COBOL Dialects : RM-COBOL 74 and 85, Microfocus COBOL-2, NCR COBOL (I-series Minis). Most exposure was COBOL on *nix systems (SVR3, SCO, Xenix), but I did have some ITX and IMOS experience, and NCR mainframes.

It would be an interesting project to revisit this - I was always rather fond of COBOL.
