    I learnt how to code in COBOL in the nineties. It's something I've never used since.

    If they're paying $100/hr plus out-of-pocket expenses, might be interested. Programmed with that "bugger" language for 40 years off and on.

    BTW - MicroFocus COBOL development is different than that done on the old IBM mainframes. MicroFocus was use to faciltate COBOL development on Windows PCs/servers. And that is some what of a mess since you have to use something like REX as your job control language versus native IBM mainframe JCL. Add to this is IBM mainframe online systems are developed using CICS or equilavent.
