Understanding large and complex COBOL applications is impeded by the fact that COBOL lacks of structuring concepts such as procedures and functions. Missing concepts for scoping variables and data structures result in a nightmare when application components have to be modularized.
We show how AMELIO Logic Discovery identifies procedures and logical groups together with their interfaces, determines the scope of variables and derives proposals for refactorings. By this the understanding of the application is facilitated.

The various analysis of AMELIO Logic Discovery detect implicit information and relationships and present the results in a clear and understandable way.
