OverviewThis course provides instruction and practice in the use of the more complex S/390 Assembler Language facilities for the experienced assembler language programmer. The course includes a discussion of standard linkage conventions, use of BSAM/QSAM and selected system macros, the macro definition language, and reentrant coding considerations. Emphasis is placed on enhancing skills in problem resolution through analysis of more complex system-provided dumps.AudienceThis course is designed for application programmers and beginning system programmers who code, maintain, and debug application support programs or subroutines written in S/390 assembler language.PrerequisitesYou should be able to:
  • Code and debug simple S/390 assembler language programs
Objective
  • Identify data management considerations and access methods
  • Code assembler language programs which:
    • Conform to standard linkage conventions using save area chaining
    • Define and use BSAM/QSAM datasets through standard I/O macros
  • Define and execute user macros which contain:
    • Positional and/or keyword parameters
    • Fixed or variable entry parameter lists
    • Conditional assembly logic
  • Use variable length storage operations (that is, EX, MVCL, and so on)
  • Employ more complex instructions (that is, TR, TRT, BXLE, and so on)
  • Access JCL parameter data
  • Employ LE date/time handling services
  • Identify reentrant coding considerations and dynamic storage acquisition
