Delta Cobol

Delta COBOL is a programming language that enhances the capabilities of traditional COBOL. It adds support for machine-independent file handling, dynamic memory allocation, and a preprocessor. Delta COBOL is commonly used to modernize legacy systems written in COBOL by making them more efficient and easier to maintain. The language continues to be used today due to the continued importance of many large-scale business applications written in COBOL.
