Does anyone know if there is a way to convert a .cpp program,using either Borland 5.02 or MS Visual C++ 5, to an assembly program that can be used by an IBM 3270 system?

Most C++ compilers will have options to produce assembly output.  If you have a C++ compiler for the IBM computer that does, you could use that.

Forget trying to take the assembly ooutput for an x86 computer and convert it to 3270 assembly.  It would be a huge task.  You would probably be better of starting from scratch

Try and get a __Native__ C++ compiler for your IBM system. Then recompile on this platform.  Forget about trying to compile on your PC.

If I were you, I'd purchase a cross-compiler.  They are only about $500 million!!

No, there is not!!  The reason is that the 3270 is NOT a computer but rather a data terminal system.  If you have 3270 type terminals it's likely that they do connect to some type of IBM (or compatible) computer system.  It would probably help if you know what kind it is and what OS it is running.  It could be anything from an RS6000/AIX machine to an AS/400 to a System 370 mainframe.
