In the "old days" when I and you all wrote COBOL
there was a way to specify a thingo called, i think, a report line. It
looked something like
88 something or other
Mneh, it doesnt matter. the point is . I am getting there ...
Print, sprintf etc etc etc are really (he said) remnants of the 1970's
or perhaps even earlier. Now, I want to disregard the eminently
beautiful gb.report components here BUT
surely in this day and age it is possible to come up with "something"
that would allow use to "Print" a set of stuff to stdout (or wherever).
Maybe this damn project IS sending me insane(r).
anyone, surely you have used COBOL?\
