Basic Assembly Language (BAL) is the commonly used term for a lowlevel programming language used on IBM System360 and successor mainframes. Originally" Basic Assembly Language" applied only to an extremely restricted dialect designed to run under control of IBM Basic Programming Support (BPS360) on systems with only 8 KB of main memory, and only a card reader, a card punch, and a 360 Assembly This book is about assembly language programming for the Fujitsu BS2000 Mainframe and the IBM 360, 370, ESA390, 93xx and zSystem family of mainframe computers.
The same assembly language was also used on the Univac 9060, 9070, and 9080 mainframes.
