I was wondering how common COBOL is out in the real world. I interviewed for a company that codes in COBOL, but it's a suped up version of it that allows you to do Windows programming. The company does all the training because many of the new employees have never coded in COBOL before. Anyways, is it really in wide use out there, or is it a dying language? Is it a wise thing to get your career started in? I can't really assess how the interviews went at this point. It definitely sounds intersting, but I don't know if I should be sold on the idea or not. Thanks.
