Assembler is truly a legacy language that runs on a prehistoric platform (mainframe MVS/VS/VM).
The sad truth is that there are still many unconverted applications running on mission critical systems.
We can provide any crossover and various systems documentation necessary during the conversion processes.

Documents can sometimes take on a life of their own. Subsequently, document creation can be conceived under many different circumstances, conditions and requirements. Although by no means a 'one size fits all' approach, here is a typical example of the document creation process.
Every large applications environment has them. Critical systems written in MVS Assembler.

Much of our Assembler application experience has taken us into the internal workings of various existing systems. There are many internal interfacing modules, subroutines, event handlers, supervisor calls (SVC) entities and other associated code that in many cases are written in BAL.
Although this foreboding looking language may seem intimidating to the uninitiated, the fact is, its awesome power is in the simplicity of its structure!
Many applications are functioning with Table-Driven Assembler modules. For that matter, most programs make heavy utilization of Tables. The only sleight-of-hand aspect of Assembler is that the Table logic isn't as straight forward as with many other languages.
Assembler or 'BAL' (Basic Assembler Language), has formed the structure of many mainframe applications. Often referred to as 'Machine Language', Assembler seemed almost cryptic in its terse command structures, or mnemonics, as it is often referred.
