z/Architecture CMS Sample Program

z/Architecture CMS (ZCMS) is now formally supported in z/VM V6.1 and z/VM V5.4 with APAR VM65099.

This version of CMS runs in z/Architecture 31-bit addressing mode and enables the use of z/Architecture instructions, including those that operate on 64-bit registers, by CMS programs, while permitting most existing ESA/390-architecture CMS programs to continue to function without change. z/Architecture CMS does not exploit or explicitly support 64-bit addressing mode but it does not impose serious restrictions on programs that enter 64-bit addressing mode themselves.

Further details and usage restrictions are described in this z/Architecture CMS document PDF .
