Copy Books

Question: What do you mean by copybook? Where it is used? Why it is used?

Answer: Copybook is the COBOL term for pieces of code copied from an external location. Other languages usually refer to them as includes. They are used to include a section of code from an external file instead of having to repeat the same code in each program that uses it.
