RE: Macro List/Execute Forms (Was: Need help with Assembler ...)



I stand educated. Thank you.

Two points:

1. This is a perfect example of the whole MVS philosophy of documentation,
which seems to be "if you already understand how everything works, then our
documentation will explain everything to you perfectly."

2. " Note: Using IEABRC does not guarantee that all OS/390 macros can be
invoked without code addressability. Some macros still require
addressability to the location where the macro is invoked."

One GREAT example is the IBM macros' use of branch rather than jump
instructions. Yes, they work as documented, but they conflict with the
exploitation of the (wonderful!) new base-register-constraint-relief jump
instructions.

Check macro IEABRC.
