Hi guys,

I would be very interested in helping out here if I can.

I only have about 30 years of cobol, so my experience is somewhat

Actually, I have very little experience of Open Cobol, all mine has been
on ICL VME cobol with a small amount of MF. If this will help me with OC,
as well as helping everyone else with cobol generally, I'd be more than
willing to help.
