Our Client has a huge assembler programs from which rules have to be harvested. We had discussed about SEEC which enables rules harvesting from COBOL systems. Client wanted to know if similar systems are available for Assembler programs.
How do we harvest rules from Assembler programs.
Do we require any type of converter to convert assembler program into any other program from which rules can be harvested using any tool?

Morning Sir !

As an old IBM Assembler-Programmer, for a adequate payment I would do that job for you.

If these are old and tricky programms, i think the best investigation is done personaly and not with any automatic tool.

Regards, UmeySan

Please explain (slowly) to how in God's name we went from simple question exchanges to one's which include words such as "Harvest"?

Are you building a new set of utterly nonsensical terms for the next version of that ever popular boardroom game, entitled "Corporate Bull$hit Bingo"?

It seems to me that many non-techie types are in a contest to see who can come up with the most vague and idiotic interpretation and substitution of terms that we as technicians would never use, in fear of becoming the laughing stock of our own peers.

Phil,

I guess because I'm around this type of "speak" on a daily basis, I had to let my thoughts be known.

Well. . . .

If we can "mine" data, i suppose we can try to "harvest" business rules from code (language independent). . . If this harvesting was done with a tool that was used in many countries, would it be an International Harvester? Might some kind of "repellant" protect us from infesting bugs as we harvest? Ha, let's see the harvester pick/clean the self-modifying code.

To me (with a somewhat warped sense of humor) it is entertaining when there is a "cave-in" down at the data-mine. Had a fellow 'splain that by designing his queries with "full knowledge of the underlying data structures" and a "thorough understanding of how queries process", his creations would completely "wow" the user management with their performance and conetnt. Good thing IT insisted on an internal demo - before wowing the users. After the first demo had run several hours my politically-incorrect VP (he thought the guy was completely "full of it") asked if i'd a chance to look at what was up and how long the process might run. I suggested that a few hundred trillion rows hit might never end. . . Fellow used lots of 4+ syllable words, though. Completely overwhelmed the clueless.

because all too often, it sells. . .

It is just wonderful when one of these "term-creators" comes up with yet another (although they don't realize it) oxymoron (like Windows Security, or Microsoft Works).
