Actually quite a large percentage of sites had COBOL back in the day when I was involved with it Rich.

At one point 18% of all Developement** systems (** Those that had also licensed SEU, PDM etc.) had COBOL. For RPG I _think_ the percentage was about 95 - so many shops had both.

Thanks for sharing this. While the IBM i platform and its predecessors have all been RPG oriented, the OS has always included COBOL as an option. COBOL is my "native" language and I still create new applications with it. It integrates with the API's in the OS well and I have yet to find something that I can't get done using it. I have even deployed CGI browser applications that talk with COBOL programs.
