I'd bet $1 DFSORT is mostly PL/S or Assembler, with the performance critical areas Assembler.

Syncsort, again a guess, is mostly Assembler.

Yeah probably IBM(for DFSORT) or SYNCSORT won't let it out.

But I appreciate your response!

but the program will icon_cool.gif

high level compilers usually put some signature inside the object produced
I jave seen it for PL/1, COBOL. PL/xxx

so just browse a few load modules and Your need to know will be satisfied

Modules compiled by PL/S or PL/X internal IBM compilers leave a footprint. It seems to me most of DFSORT is straight Assembler, with a few modules compiled by PL/S or PL/X.

This is for a very ancient DFSORT from around 2005 or 2006. I suspect, if I had a current z/OS system, that this would be little changed.
