There are still many who use High Level Assembler as a programming language. These HLASM-professionals have a large number of tools and services at their disposal. Some of them are free, most of them are available under commercial conditions.
This page intends to create an overview of products and services available for the professionals who work with High Level Assembler. Each product or service is described in a few short sentences. Some of the products have a link to more extensive (commercial) information.

For ease of reference we have split the entries into four groups:
|HLASM: IBM's High Level Assembler. Sets the norm for mainframe assember products. Various compatible products exist. This is the original.|
Systems/ASM is the
assembler, used for assembling IBM mainframe assembler source.
Systems/ASM is compatible with IBM's HLASM, supporting the
macro processing language. Systems/ASM can be used in conjunction
Systems/C or stand-alone to create mainframe programs for OS/390,
TPF, CMS, VSE and other mainframe operating systems.
Systems/ASM runs on your PC or Workstation.
The Tachyon z/Assembler is the original high-speed cross-platform assembler executing on AIX, Windows 7, z/Linux, Linux x86 and Solaris. It is a compatible superset of IBM's V1R6 High Level Assembler. The object files can be linked and executed on z/OS, z/VM, z/Linux, VSE, TPF and the Tachyon Operating System.
With the unique features of the Tachyon z/Assembler you can:
z390 is a Java J2SE Open Source tool with the following major features:

|HLASM: IBM's HLASM toolkit. Features a macro set for structured programming, a workstation-based program understanding tool, the Interactive Debug Facility, and much more.|
z/XDC® is the latest in a line of comprehensive debugging tools developed by Cole Software. z/XDC® is designed for programmers who work in the most demanding z/OS and OS/390 environments. z/XDC® dramatically reduces the amount of time programmers spend finding and fixing "bugs" in low-level object code, no matter how complex.
z/XDC® fully supports 64-bit registers and storage addresses. With z/XDC®, programmers can interactively debug:
z/XDC® can debug Assembler language programs ranging from simple utilities up to entire subsystems.
|Bixoft: Specialized in High Level Assembler and its applications. Bixoft teaches HLASM courses - please see our Assembler Proficiency Self-test - and can help you to design, build and test HLASM programs. Other services we offer are: code reviews, walk-throughs, quality assessment, application documentation upgrades. Last but not least we can help identify performance bottlenecks in your applications (in whichever language they may be written) and design solutions for alleviating the problem.|
|The Trainer's Friend provides a wide assortment of Assembler courses. Here is our Assembler curriculum page . In addition, many of our courses in DB2, Language Environment, and z/OS UNIX include discussions of how to code Assembler programs that use these products and components. Scroll down on the Assembler curriculum page for more details.|
