Millennium Solution for PL/I (Programming Language 1) A high-level IBM programming language introduced in 1964 with the System/360 series. It was designed to combine features of and eventually supplant COBOL and FORTRAN, which never happened. uses mathematical

The first software product that will find and automatically correct PL/I anomalies
Anomalies is Cephalic Carnage's 4th full-length album. It was released on Relapse Records. The group expanded their sound even more than their previous album, Lucid Interval, and gained more popularity. associated with the century date change was introduced today by Data Integrity Inc. The Millennium Solution for PL/I uses a mathematical approach called Dynamic Centuries to remedy the projected system failures associated with two-character year definitions (i.e., those that ignore the century).
Data Integrity's groundbreaking product, Millennium Solution for Cobol, has been commercially available since 1996. Company officials said the demand for and acceptance of the Cobol product is fueling the company's expansion into other languages and platforms.
Dick Heiman, Research Manager at International Data Corp., Framingham, Massachusetts Framingham is a town in Middlesex County, Massachusetts. As of the 2000 census, the population was 66,910, making it the most populous town in New England. The 2005 population estimate is 65,598. , said, "Understandably, Cobol has been the predominant focus of tools for year2000 date code correction. There has been a distinct lack of tools for other important programming languages, notably PL/I. Data Integrity's Dynamic Centuries approach is an important step forward in automating the process of finding and fixing year2000 errors in PL/I applications. It is a welcome addition to a sparsely sparse
adj. spars·er, spars·est
Occurring, growing, or settled at widely spaced intervals; not thick or dense.

1. To supply with inhabitants, as by colonization; people.
The growing Millennium Solution family of products provides four significant advantages over other approaches such as field expansion and windowing For Northcoast

-- zeroes in more accurately on date occurrences requiring
-- fixes code without changing existing databases or archived
-- reduces the number of lines of code The statements and instructions that a programmer writes when creating a program. One line of this "source code" may generate one machine instruction or several depending on the programming language. A line of code in assembly language is typically turned into one machine instruction. requiring a correction by
more than 90%; and,
-- achieves a corresponding reduction in testing requirements and
significant time and dollar savings.
Typical applications of the Millennium Solution have resulted in fewer than 1% lines of code requiring correction, as opposed to reported industry averages in the range of 6% to 12% LOCs. As a result, users have reported as much as a 45% reduction in the total cost -- and a greater reduction in staff time -- to find, fix, and test date-sensitive programs, compared with widely used industry estimates.
Millennium Solution for PL/I is currently shipping. Pricing options are based on site licensing or volume.
