 Definition: 

(PL/S) An ibm machine-oriented language derived from pl/i in the late 1960s for the ibm 360 and ibm 370. PL/S permitted inline assembly language and control over register usage.

Much of IBM 360 os/mft(?), os/mvt(?), os/vs1 and os/vs2 (os/svs and mvs) were written in PL/S. It was used internally and never released to the public. It is documented in various IBM internal ZZ-? publications.

Versions: PLS1, PLSII.
