Book Description – Murach’s Mainframe COBOL pdf
Murach’s Mainframe COBOL pdf – This book is the #1 choice for professional COBOL programmers. This is the only book that shows how to design, code, test, and maintain structured COBOL programs on IBM mainframes (or enterprise systems) that are used by the largest companies in the world.
It has features you won’t find in competing books. That’s why we believe that you will learn faster and better from our book than any other book. Here are four of those characteristics.
- In chapters 4 and 5, you will learn about the structured programming methods that are used in the best mainframe shops. Paul Knoll, a veteran programmer and manager of Pacific Telephone (now SBC Communications), and other members of our staff pioneered these methods in the mid-1970s; They’ve been making life easier for programmers ever since; And they have become an ad-hoc standard in many mainframe shops.
- In addition to teaching standard COBOL, which can be run on any computer system, ours is the only book that teaches you how to work in an IBM mainframe environment. And that’s where 90% or more of all COBOL code is going on.
- 14 complete programs and dozens of coding sections describe the best coding practices currently available. Whether you are a beginner or a professional, you will increase your productivity by using these as models when coding your own programs.
- All information in this book is presented in “paired pages” with essential details and examples on the right and perspective on the left. It lets you learn faster by reading less and you won’t find anything like it in competitive books.
