Having programmed financial systems in both C and COBOL you make an excellent point. The amount of frakking work it took to ensure complete number accuracy in C was mind numbing and involved an enormous testing effort. In COBOL it was cookie cutter.
I do disagree on one point: The COBOL clause ending period caused me more headaches than the C semicolon.
