Key differences between R and COBOL

SyntaxR uses a syntax that is similar to traditional programming languages, with a focus on statistical analysis and data manipulation.COBOL uses a verbose and English-like syntax, which is designed for business applications and data processing.
ParadigmR is primarily a functional programming language, but it also supports procedural and object-oriented programming paradigms.COBOL is primarily a procedural programming language, with limited support for object-oriented programming.
TypingR is dynamically typed, meaning that variable types are determined at runtime.COBOL is statically typed, meaning that variable types are determined at compile-time.
PerformanceR is not known for its performance, especially when dealing with large datasets.COBOL is designed for high-performance and efficient processing of large volumes of data.
Libraries and frameworksR has a wide range of libraries and frameworks for statistical analysis, data visualization, and machine learning.COBOL has limited libraries and frameworks, mainly focused on business applications and data processing.
Community and supportR has a large and active community, with extensive online resources and support.COBOL has a smaller and less active community, with limited online resources and support.
Learning curveR has a steep learning curve, especially for beginners without a background in programming or statistics.COBOL has a relatively steep learning curve, as it requires understanding of its verbose syntax and specific business-oriented concepts.
