A high level specification language called Business Data-Flow Language (BDFL) based on the data-flow model of computation is described in this paper. A translator to convert BDFL Specifications into COBOL programs has been implemented. A novel feature of the proposed translation system is the use of Data Base Menagement Systems
(DBMS) in conjunction with COBOL. This relieves the user of the need to design data structures for the intended Data Processing application.
