DiBOL or Digital's Business Oriented Language is a general-purpose, procedural, imperative programming language, which is well-suited for Management Information Systems (MIS) software development. It has a syntax similar to FORTRAN and BASIC, along with BCD arithmetic. It shares the COBOL program structure of data and procedure divisions.

History

DIBOL was originally marketed by Digital Equipment Corporation (DEC) in 1970.

The original version, DIBOL-8, was produced for PDP-8, PDP-11 and DIBOL-32 VAX/VMS systems, though it can also be run on other systems through emulators.

ANSI Standards were released in 1983, 1988 and 1992. The 1992 standard was revised in 2002.
