         COBOL Object Orientated Language (OOP, COBOL)

From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

     1. Concurrent Object-Oriented Language.
     2. CLIPS Object-Oriented Language?
     3. A C++ class library developed at Texas Instruments that
     defines containers like Vectors, List, Hash_Table,
     etc.  It uses a shallow hierarchy with no common base class.
     The functionality is close to Common Lisp data structures
     (like libg++).  The template syntax is very close to
     Cfront 3.x and g++ 2.x.
     JCOOL's main difference from COOL and GECOOL is that it uses
     real C++ templates instead of a similar syntax that is
     preprocessed by a special 'cpp' distributed with COOL and
     GECOOL, JCOOL: ftp://cs.utexas.edu/pub/COOL/)">(ftp://cs.utexas.edu/pub/COOL/).
