|Summary:||A public doamin expert-system COBOL, DB/2, and CICS|
At ftp.worcester.com (which is 126.96.36.199), I have placed an MS-DOS
and Linux executable for making systematic source code enhancements
and alterations to COBOL and COBOL related languages, such as DB/2 and
CICS imbedded in COBOL.
This program employs expert-system based rules to make changes, and is
not an editor based system. The program exists as share-ware and
upgrades are available to increase functionality.
The share-ware version does not provide any provision for writing
rules, so each rule must be hand-written by the maintainer. The
marketed version has no such limitation, and using simple examples
TAKEN FROM PROGRAMS WHICH MUST BE ALTERED, rules can be derived and
applied to COBOL using the supplied rules compiler.
With this technology, it is very easy to build programs which correct
source code with YEAR-2000 problems.
If you fetch this program, please let me know what you think. It's free.
The program is at 188.8.131.52 in sub-dir '/guest/jules/apprentice/cobol').
An alias for 184.108.40.206 is ftp.worcester.com
PS: I have this same technology for PL/1, by the way. Contact me if you are
