More than 30 years ago, I wrote programs in COBOL, for IBM mainframes and other machines. Now, the language is alive and still in use. Some of my links:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/COBOL

COBOL (play /ˈkbɒl/) is one of the oldest programming languages. Its name is an acronym forCOmmon Business-Oriented Language, defining its primary domain in business, finance, and administrative systems for companies and governments.

The COBOL 2002 standard includes support for object-oriented programming and other modern language features.[1]
