Abstract for Programming Tools

Purpose of this information

The lex, yacc, and make z/OS UNIX shell utilities are described. Debugging services that are associated with z/OS UNIX System Services are also described.

Those who plan for and write application programs can create, compile, debug, and maintain application programs that adhere to open standards and, optionally, take advantage of traditional z/OS® services.

Who should read this information?

This document is intended for application programmers who need to accomplish the following tasks:
  • Port to z/OS UNIX their POSIX-conforming applications that use lex and yacc.
  • Develop POSIX-conforming applications for z/OS UNIX that use lex and yacc.
  • Manage application development by using make.
  • Debug applications.
