Since its inception, Compute (Bridgend)
Ltd has become respected internationally
for its commitment to the production of
system software for IBM Mainframe Computers,
mainly, as a result of the success of its
flagship product, SELCOPY, which now has
a worldwide customer base.
CBL's second product, CBLVCAT, is for mainframe
only, displaying system type information
for files on VSE, MVS and CMS and giving
VSAM tuning recommendations.
In 1995, CBL's policy of being driven
by the customer resulted in production of
a UNIX version of SELCOPY for the SUN Solaris
platform, which was quickly followed by
other PC and unix platforms, and 3 years
later, the AS/400.
The year 2004 saw another milestone with
the introduction of CBLi, giving an interactive
windowed front-end to both SELCOPY and CBLVCAT,
as well as a point and shoot facility for
issuing commands to the system from CBLi's
editor, which has all the features that
can be expected from a modern editor.
In 2009, CBLi was rebranded as SELCOPY/i.
CBL has no sales force and does not advertise.
Costs are kept to a minimum and openly declared
