Science makes it known,
Despite the 'common wisdom' that COBOL is a 'dead language', according
to various sources anywhere from 35% to 50% of business
applications are written in COBOL. I would imagine the dollar
value of transactions processed by COBOL programs is relatively
there is a need for utilities to manipulate COBOL source files.
COBRENUM's purpose is to insert, remove, or resequence COBOL source file line sequence
Not all COBOL platforms use line sequence numbers. As an example, HP3000 COBOL74 and Fujitsu COBOL use line sequence numbers, but HP3000 COBOL85 may not and OTCOBOL does not. COBRENUM is especially useful when manually migrating COBOL source files from one platform or compiler to another. It can be used with source programs or copybooks. As can be seen in the screen shot below, it uses a very plain, simple user interface and will run on anything from Windows 3.x to Win98SE, and Windows XP. It has not been tested on Windows ME or Windows 2000. Both COBRENUM and its help file will not execute directly on Win 7 (this is a common problem for many pre-Win 7 applications and device drivers). However, it will execute on a VMware Player 6.0.3 running Win98SE guest operating system. Data can be transferred between host and guest operating system using Drag 'n Drop. COBRENUM does not support long file names.
To use COBRENUM, just simply download cobrenum.zip, unzip cobrenum.exe
and cobrenum.hlp into any directory. Use the Windows Run Command
to execute cobrenum.exe. There is not a setup available; since this is an
programmer's utility the user can set it up to run anyway they
prefer. Help is accessible from within COBRENUM by pressing the
F1 key. To remove the program, just simply delete it.
