Macro language design for SYSTEM/360

by D. N. Freeman
The macro language design discussed in this paper provides a systematic means by which the SYSTEM/360 assembler-language programmer can develop macroinstructions, thereby expanding the set of machine-oriented instructions that serve as the basis of the assembler language. Also treated is the format of macro definitions, the design of a macro generator, and the principal considerations that governed the design of the system as a whole.
