Cobol Programming

Can anyone teach me the basics of Cobol Programming. I'm a 2nd college student and it's one of my majors. I'm having trouble understanding it. Can someone please help me? ^_^

Well technically it's been 1 month since our last meeting because of no classes caused by typhoons and stuff and midterms are coming he said that we should know how to write a simple cobol program for our midterms hahaha.

Then I suggest asking your professor.

No we don't have one. Here in the Philippines banks still use Cobol as their main program. That's why we still have to learn it.

The thing with COBOL is it's old and "nobody" (not entirely true) uses it. It is not a very popular language anymore, you might find something if you look hard enough online, but you really need a book if you want to learn it. Don't you have any COBOL books in your syllabus?

Well yeah technically it's hard to find resources online I'm not going to post something here if I found a useful one online wouldn't I? I'm just searching for tutorial. This site has taught me a lot about Java and it's one of my majors so don't tell me no one can teach me how to do Cobol okay?

Of course I tried searching in google, but can't understand it it's for advanced programmers. I'm just a beginner I just want to know the basics of Cobol. There's no programming tutorial videos in buckysroom but I learning Java.

I think you're going to have a hard time finding resources online. As far as I know, very few people use COBOL nowadays, although there are some systems that rely on it (which is also why there is still demand for COBOL programmers)

I would be surprised if there is anyone here which uses or have used COBOL. 

I think your best shot is to get a good book on it. Sadly I don't think we will be able to help you out much further than that. I could be wrong though. Good luck.

I think it is pretty obvious what this section is for.
