utility program is used to translate source code when porting in the opposite direction, that is, from UNIX to mainframe format.
Both utilities take source code from standard input, perform the translation, and then print the output to the standard output.
utilities do not accept input or output filename arguments; therefore, the most effective way to use these utilities is to redirect the input and output files.

Hilmas is a programming language; and not an high level or user friendly language, a Windows programming language or a database or web server language.
It is a mainframe language; yes, a programming language for old IBM mainframes that run old Operating System like MVS, VM or VSE; is a language that run on a 370/390 environment, on machines that today only a big company or organization owns.
Note that every program must have as first instruction "/INCLUDE HILMAS MAC": this is not a Hilmas instruction but an environment dependent directive; the task is to enclose in the program deck, before assembling, the definitions of the Macros that constitute the Hilmas language itself.

 IBM rolls out Migration Utility for mainframe COBOL reports
IBM has announced its Migration Utility for z/OS and OS/390, allowing sites to create standard COBOL reports using Computer Associates' Easytrieve Plus language without Easytrieve Plus installed, and which run in place of the Easytrieve run-time interpreter.
Existing Easytrieve programs can be converted to standard COBOL and enhanced or extended by embedding new COBOL statements in the programs.
In a nutshell, the Migration Utility can be used to replace Easytrieve Plus for existing reports, to modify or enhance converted reports using Easytrieve language, or to create new reports using the Easytrieve Plus language.
