There continue to be a large number of COBOL shops. In some cases COBOL
side-by-side with RPG, in other cases just COBOL.

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.

David,

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.
