Neat 3 was the macroassembler on the NCR 'mainframe', it didn't
run on their I series (I *150, I 8200, I 9200 I-9300)

IMOS and IRX

I think Neat/3 was on the B series and later on the VRX systems.
Rather RPG-y.

old-style RPG looks like macroassembler to me. One instruction per
line, lots of flags. Oops indicators.

The Burroughs systems looked much closer to the IBM 360
environment to me.
