What are the two search techniques ?..

Answer / vish

If you talk in COBOL, then yes we have type os searches -
sequential search and Binary search.

Syntax:
SEARCH - Sequential
SEARCH ALL - Binary

It is important to note that for the Binary search the
input file (or table) must be sorted order else the result
of the SEARCH ALL will be wrong.
