Hello,
I'm an ex-lurker and I'm back! And glad to be.
I've been asked to quote on a job which is documenting a 4-year old COBOL
application which has since been customized.
The burning question is:
Do any tools exist to convert COBOL code to some form of documentation, or
to extract some of the useful code?
The other question is:
Can you use the number of lines of code (100,000 for this one) as a factor
in estimating the time required to do the job? If you can, can I? Any
guidelines on this one?

Thanks in advance
Jerolynn Cochrane
