Overview of Reference Manual

This manual provides a full technical description of the ACUCOBOL-GT language. It is written in a style similar to the official ANSI definition of COBOL and is designed for experienced COBOL programmers. Intended as a reference, it does not try to teach programming or the COBOL language. Readers interested in a more general introduction to COBOL may want to consider classes or commercially available textbooks.
