Empower your developers to use their preferred open source languages. We offer more than 30 open source languages and tools—including Git, R and Python—that allow any developer to harness the power of the mainframe without having to spend months learning new skills.
Python is a general-purpose, high-level programming language. Python is an interpretive language, and allows users to get their programs working quickly, without a large learning curve.
Perl is a general-purpose, interpreted, dynamic programming language. This port offers enhancements over other versions of Perl; it’s preconfigured and precompiled, designed to address the ASCII/EBCDIC conversion, and provides Unicode support.
Tcl (Tool Command Language) is a scripting language commonly used for rapid prototyping, scripted applications, GUIs and testing. In many cases users can implement applications 5-10x faster than is possible using other languages.
