To install the Windows version of the assembler product,
run the provided self-extracting installation program.
The product is normally installed into the
C:\Tachyon directory, however you may choose a different directory
at installation time.
To install the UNIX or Linux version of the assembler product,
extract the files from the supplied
tar file (which may need to be decompressed).
The softcopy version of this manual is
provided in HTML format and is viewable via your web browser.
Verify the installation
After the installation is complete, you may verify that the assembler
is working by running the supplied txaivp script.
This will assemble the supplied
txaivp.390 program using the txaivp.mac copy member.
It should produce a listing file txaivp.lst and an object file
txaivp.obj. If you wish, the object file can be uploaded to a
mainframe file with fixed length 80 byte records and link-edited.
If executed on an MVS or VM system or the
System, it will display Hello World on the console.
Complete the set-up
After the installation has been verified, you may also need to set
some environment variables in CONFIG.SYS, the registry, or your
.profile or .login file, depending on your operating system.
The environment variables used by the assembler are described below.
Also, refer to the TXA_ReadMe.txt or x390.readme
file for more information.
