hardware sizing tools  old COBOL days, computer hardware had limited capability, and computers had a limited number of peripherals to open multiple files simultaneously. Now with hard disks and RDBMS, any number of files can be opened concurrently. As well, computers’ RAM was limited, which made it necessary to limit the size of a program and to use variables inside the program with great care. Now that massive amounts of RAM are available, these restrictions are no longer relevant. Also in the past, programming was a complex
