Read an old COBOL program and document it in english such that a business user could read and understand it

With COBOL programmers retiring, clients struggle to identify critical business logic hidden in old COBOL code. This ability is also important for refactoring old COBOL code, creating APIs and Integration points, and in deciding which capabilities to keep on Z and which to move to distributed platforms.

    Agree with Christophe and also it should be very useful if the documentation can take into account some ecosystem information given in different files (such as name of data and files/tables, existing documentation if any, name of subprograms or services).
