PL/I on z/OS

Application programming on z/OS

Programming Language/I (PL/I, pronounced "P-L one"), is a full-function, general-purpose, high-level programming language.

PL/I is suitable for the development of:

  • Commercial applications
  • Engineering/scientific applications
  • Many other applications

The process of compiling a PL/I source program and then link-editing the object deck into a load module is basically the same as it is for COBOL.

The relationship between JCL and program files is the same for PL/I as it is for COBOL and other HLLs.
