Mmmmm... now you're bringing back the memories.  Yeah, I think COBOL
pretty much has to rank as one of the least dense programming languages
out there (not counting fringe stuff like unlambda) -- especially if you
go all "hardcore" and type things like MULTIPLY A BY B GIVING C. instead
of C = A * B.

Heh.  COBOL was fun.

And I...I could do anything, if only I could get 'round to it.
Oh we were brought up on the space-race, now they expect you to clean toilets.
When you've seen how big the world is, how can you make do with this?
If you want me, I'll be sleeping in - sleeping in throughout these glory days."

Think of XML as Lisp for COBOL programmers.
