Meaning of COBOL FINGERS

 
Computing Dictionary
 
 Definition: 

/koh'bol fing'grz/ Reported from Sweden, a (hypothetical) disease one might get from coding in cobol. The language requires code verbose beyond all reason (see candygrammar); thus it is alleged that programming too much in COBOL causes one's fingers to wear down to stubs by the endless typing.
