Structured PL/I Coding Workshop - Course Objectives

On successful completion of this course, the student, with the aid of the appropriate reference materials, should be able to:

  1. Describe the basic elements of the PL/I language
  2. Code PL/I programs that handle sequential processing of CONSECUTIVE files, using move mode record I/O
  3. Design a program using pseudocode to arrive at a solid structured design for implementation in PL/I
  4. Handle most programming applications for batch jobs: file transfers, reports (including page breaks and control breaks), and match merge applications
  5. Code PL/I programs that handle arrays and tables
  6. Use limited stream I/O functions, primarily for debugging.
