An what if the COBOL programmer makes a mistake ? [1]

This is an interesting example. I think my point would not necessarily to
convince the management. Probably the COBOL programmer will like it better
if s/he can write a regex that will do 60% of the work so s/he can take
one day off.

[1] No problem as they have a test suit that will catch the problem within
minutes. They do have a test suit, right ?
