Key differences between Scheme and COBOL

SyntaxScheme has a simple and minimalist syntax, with a focus on parentheses and prefix notation.COBOL has a verbose and English-like syntax, with a focus on readability and self-documentation.
ParadigmScheme is a functional programming language that supports procedural and object-oriented programming.COBOL is primarily a procedural programming language with limited support for object-oriented programming.
TypingScheme is dynamically typed, allowing flexible and late binding of variables.COBOL is statically typed, requiring explicit declaration of variables and early binding.
PerformanceScheme is generally considered to have good performance, especially for numerical and symbolic computations.COBOL is optimized for handling large-scale business data processing, but may not be as efficient for other types of computations.
Libraries and frameworksScheme has a smaller ecosystem of libraries and frameworks compared to other languages, but it has a strong focus on extensibility and customizability.COBOL has a mature ecosystem of libraries and frameworks specifically designed for business applications and mainframe systems.
Community and supportScheme has a smaller community compared to mainstream languages, but it has a dedicated and passionate user base.COBOL has a large and active community, especially in the enterprise and mainframe computing domains.
Learning curveScheme has a steep learning curve due to its unique syntax and functional programming concepts.COBOL has a relatively low learning curve, especially for programmers with a background in procedural programming.
