Well, the +3 modifier does have one advantage. All races are equal and
can all be given the same creation requirement of A.

To the question: is there a COBOL mode for GNU emacs:

Isn't it pitiful when the editor you are using is a better programming

BTW, there is a COBOL and a Fortran mode.

The copyright to their contents probably lies with the original authors of the individual messages, but since they were published in an electronic forum that anyone could subscribe to, and the logs were available to subscribers and most likely non-subscribers as well, it's felt that re-publishing them here is a kind of public service.
