I am a java programmer. I am working on converting
Cobol copybooks to other formats. I went through a
couple of Cobol tutorials but could not find any
reference to copybook in them.

- Is copybook a way of representing the Working
Storage section in a file just like "include files" in
C/C++ or is it more than that ? Or is it like a data
format definition like an XSD ? 

- Is there any standard specification for copybook
which I can reference. Searching on google only
yielded examples of copybooks rather than the spec

Any links would be appreciated !
