All orders for the regular 11th Edition will be automatically upgraded to the Update Edition. Please note the following changes made to the 11e Update Edition. As the authors were researching material on the COBOL standard, they realized that the planned COBOL 2008 standard (discussed in the 11th edition) did not in fact occur. Some of the items marked as COBOL 2008 in the 11th edition had in fact changed in 2002, and some marked as COBOL 2008 will now finally be changed in the upcoming proposed COBOL 2013 standard. Therefore, in the Update Edition, we have changed the icons to indicate COBOL 2002 changes and the upcoming proposed COBOL 2013 changes. We removed all references to NetExpress, (which Wiley no longer distributes,) and added information on the new Micro Focus Academic Program. As of Summer 2013, members of this program are eligible to receive free licenses of Visual COBOL for teaching; free downloads of Visual COBOL Personal Edition for students; free online web support through community forums, blogs, and support network; and access to online software documentation and product manuals. Visit www.microfocus.com/bridgethegap for information on how to join. Some instructors reported that their students complained that the book felt dated, due to the older dates in code output. For a more contemporary feel, we changed these dates to the current year. We added program names to Practice Programs in the text for easier reference.

Beginning COBOL for Programmers is a comprehensive, sophisticated tutorial and modular skills reference on the COBOL programming language for established programmers. This book is for you if you are a developer who would like to—or must—add COBOL to your repertoire. Perhaps you recognize the opportunities presented by the current COBOL skills crisis, or are working in a mission critical enterprise which retains legacy COBOL applications. Whatever your situation, Beginning COBOL for Programmers meets your needs as an established programmer moving to COBOL. Beginning COBOL for Programmers includes comprehensive coverage of ANS 85 COBOL features and techniques, including control structures, condition names, sequential and direct access files, data redefinition, string handling, decimal arithmetic, subprograms, and the report writer. The final chapter includes a substantial introduction to object-oriented COBOL. Benefiting from over one hundred example programs, you’ll receive an extensive introduction to the core and advanced features of the COBOL language and will learn to apply these through comprehensive and varied exercises. If you've inherited some legacy COBOL, you’ll be able to grasp the COBOL idioms, understand the constructs, and recognize what's happening in the code you’re working with. Today’s enterprise application developers will find that COBOL skills open new—or old—doors, and this extensive COBOL reference is the book to help you acquire and develop your COBOL skills.
