This publication is a guide to the use of the OS PL/I Optimizing Compiler (Program
No. 5734-PLl) in a batch environment of your operating system. It explains how to
use the compiler to execute PL/I programs and describes the operating system features
that may be required by a PL/I programmer. It does not describe the language implemented by the compiler, nor does it explain how to use the compiler in an operating system with the Time Sharing Option (TSO) or with the Conversational Monitor System (CMS) of VM/370; these are the functions of the manuals listed under "Associated Publications," below.
For execution of a PL/I program, the optimizing compiler employs subroutines from the OS PL/I Resident Library (Program No. 5734-LMU) and the OS PL/I Transient Library (Program No. 573U-LM5), and this programmer's guide assumes the availability of these program products.
