I loved COBOL, at least the later COBOLs that weren't so restrictive over line lengths.

A lovely, verbose language and you can make it very modular.

I've used dozens of languages over the years, COBOL has a soft spot, as does Z80 and 6502 Assembler. 68K Assembler was also nice, but x86 Assembler was a nightmare in comparison, assembler equivalent of VHS, compared to 68K laser disc...
