Managed COBOL Reference

Managed COBOL supports all aspects of the managed framework (both .NET and JVM), providing new syntax specifically designed to support these features.

In addition, managed COBOL continues to support all of the existing COBOL syntax (for procedural COBOL) with very few exceptions.

This reference describes the syntax designed and recommended for managed COBOL. The syntax for procedural COBOL is documented in the COBOL Language Reference.
