I have seen many request for "
IBM Assembler - Tutorial, References, Examples, Manuals, Emulators, Utilities, Books, FAQ " etc. I have compiled some pertinent information below. Please feel free to add useful URLs/info. for the benefit of our ASSEMBLER forums knowledge base. Some of these links have great examples. If you are seriously considering learning by examples, please see the CBT tape files and learn from other's work - why reinvent the wheel. Also, see other links like SimoTime. Please, take your time and patiently navigate through these URLs/links. Learning assembler is - more often than not - is a frustrating and self intimidating experience to the beginners. The learning curve is unlike other programming languages.

I have decided that rather than self-publish, I will make it available to anyone for non-commercial use via the internet. This is my small way of saying "thank you" to the many unknown persons whose contributions to the internet have enriched my personal and professional life. I hope that someone out there finds this useful. If so, I would love to hear from you. Please drop me a line at
firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you. p.s. I am available for corporate training on this and many other IT topics. Please contact me if I can be of service to your company.
