Abstract

Assemblers with macro capabilities have been available for over ten years. There has been a limited number of mainly unpublished systematic uses of such capabilities in the construction of a variety of systems. This paper will cover a number of these cases. We will examine the features of the macro systems which allowed their usage as well as the method used in the system implementation. We will comment on the effect on efficiency and flexibility that the use of this facility has produced.
