folks who think COBOL is a dead language
Sounds more like the CFO who beats you silly screaming "What do you mean it isn't 2.6???????"
when you have code like
i, j, k float ; i = 1.3 ; j = 1.3 ; k = i + j ;
a few billion $ and that rounding error and you get a pretty big problem
COBOL does it exactly and you get 2.6 ... exactly without thinking about it
Oh yeah - pet peeve - THAT CFO
