Micro Focus Plc has extended its MS-DOS Co-Writer, which generates reports from applications written in its Level II Cobol, Professional Cobol or with Sourcewriter, to the Digital Research C-DOS and Concurrent CP/M operating systems, and to Altos Computer’s Xenix, with the promise that OS/2 and other versions of Xenix will soon be supported. Co-Writer uses Cobol’s own file structures to access miscellaneous data directly and extract it on demand, and uses a menu system to obviate the need for any knowledge of Cobol on the part of the user. It consists of Co-Writer Report and Co-Writer System Builder, the latter used to create the data dictionary needed to incorporate Co-Writer features into existing and future products. It is UKP495.
