The Relationship Between COBOL and Computer Science
October-December 1985 (vol. 7 no. 4)
pp. 348-352

Based on interviews, reviews of the literature, and personal impressions, the author offers historical, technical, and social/psychological perspectives on the fragile relationship between COBOL and computer science. The technical contributions of COBOL to programming language design are evaluated. Five proposals for computer science research on COBOL and fourth-generation languages are described.
