Hi,
I apologize for my primitive questions beforehand,
I was curious about the word "HIGH" in High Level Assembly Language.
Does conventional Assembly Language exist , so there is distinction between "High" and "Low" (conventional) Assembly language for IBM mainframes

Thank you in advance,

My regards

Hi,
High Level Assembler provides:
Extensions to the basic assembler language.
Extensions to the macro and conditional assembly language, including external function calls and built-in functions.
Enhancements to the assembly listing, including a new macro and copy code member cross reference section, and a new section that lists all the unreferenced symbols defined in CSECTs.

For more information see the following links:

High Level Assembler (HLASM) is IBM's latest version of the assembler. It is a successor to previous versions of IBM mainframe assembler, such as Assembler H, Assembler F, and Basic Assembler Language (BAL).
Market-speak, in other words. No, there is no "Low Level Assembler", and Basic Assembler Language is early 1960's era assembler code (which will run unchanged on today's zArchitecture.

Cheers,,,Steve
