Abstract

Billions of lines written in Cobol, PL/I, and other mature languages are still in active use. Many developers have tried to convert these languages to more modern ones, but few have succeeded. This article sheds light on the realities of language conversions and discusses the possibilities and limitations of automated language converters.
