Assignment might create more of a hiccup, but there is nothing too radical even in that. The real difference between COBOL and these other languages lies in how data is declared. This chapter explores the different categories of data used in COBOL. It demonstrates how you can create and use items of each category. Because COBOL’s approach to data declaration affects assignment in COBOL, that topic is also examined in this chapter. Categories of Program Data COBOL programs basically use three categories of data: u Literals u Figurative constants u Data items (variables) Unlike other programming languages, COBOL does not support user-defined constants.

Once you have done this, the StudentRec area of storage is instantiated with the data as shown in Example 3-5. Example 3-5. StudentRec as an Elementary Data Item WORKING-STORAGE SECTION. 01 StudentRec PIC X(44). StudentRec 1 2 0 5 6 2 1 W I l l i a m F i t z p a t r i c k 1 9 7 5 1 0 2 1 L M 0 5 1 3 8 5 You can see that the data in StudentRec consists of a number of pieces of information: the student’s ID, the student’s name, the date of birth, the course ID, and the student’s grade point average (GPA).

Declaring Elementary Data Items In typed languages, the data type specified is important because the type determines the range of values that the item can store and governs the operations that can be applied to it. For instance, a Java int data item can store values between -2,147,483,648 and 2,147,483,647 and can only be used in operations that expect an operand of that, or a compatible, type. From the type of the item, the compiler can establish how much memory to set aside for storing its values.
