A user of this program would typically assemble their assembler source with an option to produce a SYSADATA output. This program would process this file producing a file containing HTML source and Javascript functions. The user would them make this file available to a Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) Server so it could be viewed by a Browser program.

The user can now view the assembler listing using their Browser program. The Javascript functions enables navigation features within the listing and also provide the ability to display additional information in different windows. They are designed to greatly improve the productivity of viewing an Assembler listing via a Browser over viewing the existing listing format.

These features are :
