Sort Merge Generator

Sort Merge Generator (SMG) is a programming language used to create indexes and sort files on IBM's z/OS. SMG generates JCL and COBOL or Assembler code, which can be executed in batch or online environments. The tool is helpful in processing large amounts of data on mainframes by creating highly efficient code sequences for sorting and merging operations. The language can significantly reduce the development time needed to write such procedures manually.
