where can i get programming guide for
IBM-9672-R14 ACS (Advance Computing System)?

Actually i have some old programs for this Computer, & I am not a Computer engineer.
The Program contains Statement like,

DCL CALLRC FIXED BIN(31, 0) INIT(0)
DCL FLOWTAG CHAR(10)
DCL FLOWVAL FLOAT DEC(6)

DCL UNAVE FLOAT DEC(6) BASED(ADDR(UNAVEBIT))
DCL UNAVEBIT BIT(32) INIT('10000000000000000000000000000000'B)

I am not able to understand what kind of Declaration is this?
Which is this Programming language?

Could somebody help me with this?

Hello,

The code you posted looks like PL/I code.

If you want, i'll move your topic to the PL/I forum and the folks who speak PL/I may be of more assistance.

The IBM-9672 is a processor model. Which operating system is that system running? If you don't know, you can ask the system support people or the computer operations people and they can tell you which o/s is running.

Thanks for your Support.

You can move this to appropriate forum, i didn't understood where should i post it as i am not confirm what the language is?

And i am a Automation vendor and i am changing IBM-9672 processor to my system so that i need to move all applications running on this system to my system.
But not me and as well as no body at client end understand what it is?
and i think they are not able to tell me which O/S it is running with.

You're welcome icon_smile.gif

For starting out, you picked a good part of the forum.

Are there questions about the programming language? If there will be only programming type questions, this can be moved to the pl/i section.

Here is a link that will explain more about that (IBM-9672) hardware.
http://www-03.ibm.com/ibm/history/exhibits/mainframe/mainframe_PP390G4B.html

If you talk with the people who operate the computer, they should know what they are running - i suspect it will be some flavor of MVS (OS/390, z/OS, etc).

A big question that comes to mind is "will your system run in IBM mode?".

As you learn more about the specifics, additional topics can be started in other parts of the forum.

Just let me know. . .

Noticed that while i was typing, your topic was re-located.

That's gr88....this link will really help me to understand IBM-9672.

But my main concern is about to Understand Application Programs.
Because i have to convert these in to VB.Net programs,

If you can help me in what is the programming language used depending upon the statement i have given in my first post,
and where to read about that then it will solve my purpose.

Thanks in anticipation.
Really appreciate your help.

Hello,

From the bit of code you posted, i believe you have pl/i code. I suspect there is other code on the system as well. At the top of the forum web pages is a "Manuals" link and the "Enterprise PL/I Language Reference" and the "Enterprise PL/I Programming Guide" manuals are linked there.

There will also be many sets of control for various utility functions. Do you know if the current system is supported by a database product?

Somewhere between many and most of the jobs run on an IBM mainframe will be difficult to covvert to the .net environment (at any level of the framework). The platforms are entirely different.

If the client has shown you some transaction screens, the screens may be built with VB.NET rather easily, but the underlying infrastructure will take considerably more work.
