This course provides an examination of the z/series instruction set for use with 64-bit registers, immediate operations, arithmetic functions, and new capabilities. This course will use extensive coding labs and exercises to provide the opportunity to gain familiarity with instruction set usage and behavior.
Students should be familiar with Assembler Language Programming, z/OS JCL, utilities, and TSO/ISPF.
3 days/Lecture & Lab
This course is designed for Assembler language programmers that wish to examine the new instruction capabilities of the z/series processors.
- General instructions
- Arithmetic instructions
- Immediate instructions and bit manipulation instructions
- Processor dependent instructions
