The COBOL Report Writer - A worked example

Unlike the other topics here, which contain only the slides from my COBOL lectures, the Report Writer units contain a full tutorials. I am rewriting all the topics to this level and would be interested in your comments on this one. Please send comments to - michael.coughlan@ul.ie

This tutorial introduces the Report Writer by means of a worked example. It starts by looking at the output produced by a fairly complex Report Writer program and then examines what code the programmer had to write to produce the report.

Please note the copyright restrictions at the end of the Report Writer tutorial.

 


The COBOL Report Writer - Syntax and Semantics

This tutorial provides a Report Writer reference. The syntactic elements of the Report Writer are presented and the semantics of their operation discussed.
