Assembler for COBOL Programmers MVS, VM (The J. Ranade IBM Series)

By Hank Murphy

This book enables COBOL programmers to understand what goes on behind their coding, as their program is translated into basic machine language and shown as Assembler language in the compiler's listing. This knowledge will make it easy for you to understand your program's coding as shown in a dump.
Although COBOL has gone through several evolutions, and Assembler as well, the principles are still valid and all of the instructions shown are still valid.
