Hi Nicol,
Most definitely not. C++ is an all purpose programming language that
can be used to do low-level programming such as writing an operating
system’s kernel, drivers, etc all the way up to high-level programming
like games, text editors, and similar day to day applications. Cobol
is a specific programming language for writing reports and things like
that. In other words Cobol is pretty much useless to a programmer
unless he works for a company that needs to generate a lot of reports,
forms, etc. That's why in the scheme of things Cobol is being replaced
by languages like Python, Perl, and Ruby which can do the same thing
and are easier to use.
