I have to convert the Assembler programs to COBOL, if any body worked on this kind of senorio Please can you help me out providing the Guidelines or some documentation to follow up the conversion.
Please kindly send me the documents if any body has it to my personal id below:-
Are you looking for tools? I do not know of any.
Do you know and understand assembler?
The only way to convert such that I know is to understand the logic and flow of the assembler program and write COBOL code to match.
Yes, i am looking for Utilities/tools, Yes i know Assembler but
I am looking for some kind of documents, for converting Assembler to COBOL. some of you guys already been worked in these kind of projects.
i have seen the site but i am unable to find the information.
There is no information provided in the link and now i have to convert some Assembler Programs to COBOL. if you have any kind of document please provide or any one worked on this kind of project please provide me the guide lines.

The "COBOL" modules that are generated by any tool are NOT good code and are not maintainable. If you find a tool you think you'd like to try have them convert a couple of your complex assembler modules and look at the generated code.
This concern was in the forum recently and several people recommended that you understand what an assembler module is doing and then re-write it in COBOL. Do not try to convert line for line.
