comment Rewriting IBM assembler + COBOL in C++
@Thorbjørn Ravn Andersen, I hear you, but there are a lot of reasons to update code that old, not the least of which is that the car rental business has certainly changed in that time. Also, from the sound of it, the user interface is abysmal, and I would hope that we've learned a great deal in the human factors department since 1972. Finally, battle tested or not, modern languages allow for quick adaptation of new modules or additions, which are virtually impossible with assembly code programs.
