The Assembler Challenge

Of all the programming languages in common use today, Assembler is the most complex, and costly to maintain, re-engineer and transform. Making a change in an Assembler program is almost three times the complexity of COBOL and up to six times more complex than making a change in a more modern language. And IBM Mainframe Assembler  is the most functionally rich and complex of all.
The combination of a diminishing pool of skilled developers, together with often complex un-documented code and a lack of effective analysis tools can make Assembler based applications a significant drain on maintenance resources and a serious inhibitor to business flexibility.
