I just realized I did not mention in my last post that we still have people programming with COBOL at our company. Don't know how many new projects are being started with COBOL as most of this development was tied to the HP3000 platform. The HP3000 is no longer supported by HP and yet there are still lots of companies running their business on these machines. We still have COBOL programmers to take care of them by providing support and enhancements to their applications.
So what's my point? I guess if I compare this to the recent Microsoft announcement about no future versions of VFP I feel a little more positive about my future with VFP.
