Basic structure of a COBOL Program:
Any COBOL code or set of code written, have a hierarchical structure. Therefore, it needs all the components to be present for head-to-toe relationship as shown in the above figure.
In plain language, a division in COBOL program is a block of code, which usually contains one or more sections. It starts where the division name is stated and ends with the beginning of the next division.
Sections are the logical subparts or subdivision of the program logic. It is the collection of paragraphs.
Paragraphs are the portions of various selections. These selections are a user-defined or predefined names which are followed by a period. This section includes zero or more sentences.
Sentences are a combination of single or multiple statements. They occur only in the procedure division. A sentence in COBOL language must end with a period(.) according to the syntax.
These are the meaningful COBOL statements which perform code processing.
Characters cannot be divided further as these are lowest entity in the hierarchy.
Benefits of development in COBOL:
