Abstract

The method described allows a PL/I program to request services and obtain data from any control program/system control program in Assembler language. It permits the application programmer to use the Assembler language whenever required, without employing subprograms, since programs coded for the interface have the two languages intermixed in one source deck and are separated only before compilation by the Language Analysis Program, which provides the prerequisites for a successful connection during the link/edit phase.
