COBOL Programming Language

COBOL (Common Business-Oriented Language) is a programming language primarily used in business, finance, and administrative systems. It has been widely used in legacy systems since the 1960s. COBOL emphasizes readability and self-documenting code, making it suitable for large-scale and long-term projects. Despite its age, COBOL continues to play a crucial role in maintaining critical business applications.

Examples of generated COBOL code

The following are examples of some programs created by this COBOL code generator. Note that you may not always get the same code since it is generated by an AI language model which is not 100% deterministic and gets updated from time to time.

Greet User

Program that takes a user's name as input and prints 'Hello' along with the user's name.

Temerpature Converter (Celsius to Fahrenheit)
