COBOL vs F#: What are the differences?

COBOL: Imperative, procedural and, since 2002, object-oriented programming language. COBOL was one of the first programming languages to be standardised: the first COBOL standard was issued by ANSI in 1968. COBOL is primarily used in business, finance, and administrative systems for companies and governments; F#: Strongly-typed, functional-first programming language for writing simple code to solve complex problems. F# is a mature, open source, cross-platform, functional-first programming language. It empowers users and organizations to tackle complex computing problems with simple, maintainable and robust code.

COBOL and F# can be primarily classified as "Languages" tools.

F# is an open source tool with 2.09K GitHub stars and 341 GitHub forks. Here's a link to F#'s open source repository on GitHub.
