For courses on IBM 360/370 Assembly Language, Kindred offers extensive use of structured programming at the assembly language level. The continuity of examples using the same data provides a consistent theme. Programs begin with simple character operations and gradually move on to more advanced topics. Abundant laboratory assignments are included in the text itself; no additional manual is required. File creation and processing are covered with indexed sequential and VSAM files. A complete set of sample programs for each chapter allows students to see fully developed models.Kindred, Alton R. is the author of 'Structured Assembler Language for IBM Computers', published 1987 under ISBN 9780155840706 and ISBN 0155840703.
