VisibleZ is an object code interpreter for IBM Assembly language. It was designed as a tool for teaching and learning IBM Assembler. It consists of a collection of Java classes that represent mainframe components (cpu, registers, instructions, …). Use the tool four ways:

  1. Load the object code for a working program. Step through the code and watch the effects of each instruction,
  2. Learn the details of a specific instruction by coding the execute() method for the instruction in Java, and
  3. Write a small program in object code that executes some instructions,
  4. Act like a computer architect and invent your own instruction set.

Be sure to click on the Settings tab in Visiblez and type in the path to the CODES directory.
