Use COBOL to parse JSON

This simple COBOL application demonstrates how to parse JSON using IBM Enterprise COBOL. It is written to work in a standalone fashion so it can run without any input files. The JSON string is declared in memory, as are the results from the parse, and everything is printed out for clarity.
The first JSON text that you will need to parse contains information about the client and is defined in working storage as jtxt-1047-client-data.
It looks like this:

The second JSON text that you’ll use contains transaction data stored in a JSON array. You’ll define it in working storage as jtxt-1047-transactions.
It looks like this:

Google Authenticator’s First Android Update in Years Lets You Move Your Account Between Devices

Google Authenticator, the company’s code-based authentication app, has received its first update in three years, updating the app’s interface for larger screens with more modern aspect ratios and delivering one of the platform’s most-needed features. From a report: The Android version was last updated on August 22nd, 2017, while the iOS one was updated around a year ago to adjust it for iPhone X screens. Now, for the first time, Authenticator users will be able to easily transfer their account from one device to another without needing to manually transfer each code or disable and reenable two-factor authentication (2FA) on each account. The update introduces this feature through an import / export tool that lets you choose which accounts to include and transfer using a single QR code scan. It’s a feature that competitor Authy has provided for quite some time, so it’s refreshing to see it come to Authenticator,

Inkscape 1.0 Released

Inkscape, the free and open-source vector graphics editor, has released version 1.0 for Linux, Windows, and macOS. It comes after three years in development and over 16 years after Inkscape’s initial release. BetaNews reports: “Built with the power of a team of volunteers, this open source vector editor represents the work of many hearts and hands from around the world, ensuring that Inkscape remains available free for everyone to download and enjoy. In fact, translations for over 20 languages were updated for version 1.0, making the software more accessible to people from all over the world. A major milestone was achieved in enabling Inkscape to use a more recent version of the software used to build the editor’s user interface (namely GTK+3). Users with HiDPI (high resolution) screens can thank teamwork that took place during the 2018 Boston Hackfest for setting the updated-GTK wheels in motion,” explains the developers.

AMD Launches Ryzen 3 3300X and 3100 Low Cost, Low Power Quad-Core CPUs

MojoKid writes: AMD unveiled two new Ryzen 3 processors recently, designed to drive its Zen 2 CPU microarchitecture into more affordable price points. The new Ryzen 3 3100 and Ryzen 3 3300X are entry-level 3rd gen Ryzen CPUs that will run in any socket AM4 motherboard, with price points of only $99 (Ryzen 3 3100) and $120 (Ryzen 3 3300X). They are both quad-core/eight-thread chips, with similar cache configurations (2MB L2 + 16MB L3), and they both include basic Wraith Stealth coolers in their retail boxes. Internally, however, these two processors are somewhat different. The Ryzen 3 3100 is setup in a 2+2 configuration with two cores active per CCX (CPU Core Complex). The Ryzen 3 3300X, however, has a 4+0 configuration, with all of its active cores residing on a single CCX. These differences should result in better overall performance for the Ryzen 3 3300X, over and above just
