, SHARE in Anaheim 2012
This top-rated session is the second of a sequence of five that provide a quick and easy introduction to the most important elements of the IBM mainframe's Assembler Language. Each session covers key concepts to help you understand and write simple assembler programs, and provides illustrative examples.
Lecture 1 of the Assembler Boot Camp gave you important background on binary and hexadecimal representations and arithmetic. Topics to be covered in Part 2 include:
o Basics of machine architecture and program execution o The assembly process: Assembler Language and machine language o Differences between data and instructions o General Purpose Registers and addressing o Basic instruction formats: symbolic and machine formats o Common Assembler Language programming standards and conventions o Program entry and exit rules o A complete program example
Your learning will be enhanced if you can bring a PC-compatible laptop; but if you can't, the lab sessions will give you an opportunity to try out some sample programs. We will provide a CD or USB 'flash drive' with the ASSIST/I assembler and host emulator you can use to write, test, and print your programs.
