Yes libraries. You are absolutely right. No doubt you can get the
latest published edition of Fortran77, or Turbo Pascal. Maybe if you
look around a bit, you might find ...surprise 'Advanced Cobol
programming 2nd edition'.
Point is just because your library is well stocked, it doesnt mean
other libraries will be. Also, lots of people keep nicking the books.
