    Would it be wise, or a waste, to explore where GNU Cobol might fit in in this space?

    "Space is big. Really, really big. You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mind-bogglingly big it is."

    Pondering again.

    Cheers,

    In my opinion: I'd put your other efforts to a higher priority than exploring Wolfram & GNU Cobol. For example adding FUNCION MODULE-* to the FAQ ;-)

    :-)

    In

    http://opencobol.add1tocobol.com/gnucobol/#function-module-caller-id

    along with HIGHEST-ALGEBRAIC and LOWEST-ALGEBRAIC. (I can stop whining about MOVE HIGH-VALUE TO a-pic-9 now).

    Some of the 2.0 intrinsics are pretty neat. Someone should write these down.

    More to do, I got up to M the end in the list of missing FUNCTION docs. Done: Homework finished ... back to Wolfram.

    Cheers,
    Brian
