So RI DMV is still using a COBOL based system

Apparently there’s a big kerfuffle between the RI DMV and HP Enterprise solutions.

Part of it is that the current system is written in COBOL.

Let’s see how much I remember:


There’s the IDENTIFICATION division – essentially a place for program name, author, etc.

Next the DATA division. It’s where variables and constants get defined.

And finally the PROCEDURE division – this is where the logical constructs live.
