U N I S Y S 1100

U N I S Y S 1100


I am looking for information on COBOL on a UNISYS 1100 environment. I will be privileged if any of you can also tell me the databases that are used on a UNISYS 1100 environment?

Thanks in anticipation,

RE: U N I S Y S 1100

There are 2 main databases that are used on the 1100, now OS2200.  DMS1100, Data Management System, which is a network database.  RDMS1100, Relational Database Management System.  These can be accessed through Cobol-74 (ACOB) or Cobol-85 (UCOB), Also through Fortran.  

There is a database system called Mapper, now called BIS.  This is a self-contained product that has a scripting language that has its own data area.  This can also access RDMS1100 directly.  DMS can be access via a transaction program.
