Your question is ambiguous as asked.

If you are asking about compiling and executing PL/I programs on a PC, do you have a PL/I compiler on your PC to generate executable code from the source??

If you are asking whether a mainframe executable file can be transferred directly to a PC and executed, the answer is that the mainframe and PC architecture and underlying hardware are different so an executable file on one cannot be executed on the other (unless someone writes a conversion program or uses an emulator).

HI Robert,

AS we can compile and execute C, REXX language in a pc , similar way i want to compile and execute PL/I programs in a pc without using mainframe id.

I dont have any pl/i compiler.

I am not aware of any PL/I compilers for the PC since I don't develop in PL/I. However, Google is your friend and if there are any PL/I compilers out there Google can find them.
