The Pascal compiler I was working on generated pseudo-assembler listings.
I worked to make them valid assembler, if only to confirm the validity
of the generation. Never quite completed the chore.
Likewise, the "cc" command has the option of generating pseudo-JCL. But
that's a cop-out. It ought to be verifiable by actually running the job.
