Design so that "tasks" can be carried out by "modules" (sub-programs).

This is as opposed to the traditional "monolith" of spaghetti (nice imagery, though I say so myself).

A Basic requirement for modular programming is to divide a large programs into smaller more manageable parts known as Modules.A module in a COBOL program can be realized in two ways
1)AS a PERFORM module
2) Or as a Separately compiled subrouties
Over a google search you would get links as I got and moreover if you need a ref. books then you need to purchase them icon_confused.gif

ram_vizag, is this a homework assignment? Furthermore, since this is a professional forum you are expected to be able to help yourself to some degree -- such as using Google to find links yourself.

It must be, because ram_vizag still hasn't found what he's looking for.
