Application and systems programmers that need to develop or maintain programs using the IBM High Level Assembler.
This course introduces students to the basic skills required to write assembler programs using the IBM High Level Assembler (HLASM). Students learn to use fixed point and decimal (packed) instructions to perform required programming functions. A series of written and lab exercises will be used to reinforce the classroom education. Students will code, assemble and execute a series of programs using character, logical, packed decimal, and binary data instructions with instructor-supplied JCL and test data.
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:
- Write High Level Assembler programs that read and write disk/tape files, and generate formatted reports.
Introduction to z/OS, or equivalent experience.
TSO/ISPF, or equivalent experience.
Basic MVS JCL, or equivalent experience.
Previous experience in designing and coding application programs will enhance the results of this course.
