Simulator of IBM Mainframe Programming Environment
This project is to create a Mainframe Programming Environment Simulator running on PC Operation System (e.g. Linux, Max OS, Windows) that will compile / assemble source code intended for a Mainframe machine. The purpose of this simulator is to compiles / assembles the source code into PC program and tries to produce similar output as if the source code was compiled / assembled on a Mainframe machine. In that way, programmers will no longer need to work on Mainframe remotely while developing their programs. The entire project is significantly large in scale, so this capstone project only touches a portion of it, well defined and well separated by the functionality -- the parser for the ASSIST assembler. Nevertheless, the current simulator can already fully function as an debugging tool for CSCI 360.
