PL/X is an IBM programming language designed for mainframe systems, and it is part of the PL/I family. This high-level language provides a structured environment with extensive support for scientific, engineering, and commercial applications. With its syntax based on PL/I and its ability to easily integrate with other languages used in mainframe environments, PL/X lets developers write efficient code without needing to manage low-level details. This makes it useful when maintaining or developing legacy software on IBM systems while also allowing modern integration as part of hybrid IT landscapes.
