dc.description In this paper we describe the legacy assembler problem and describe how the FermaT transformation system is used to reengineer assembler systems and migrate from assembler to C and COBOL. Legacy assembler presents unique challenges to automated analysis and migration. The paper discusses these challenges and the solutions implemented in the FermaT system. A successful migration project is described: this involved migrating over 3000 assembler source modules to efficient and maintainable C code. Very few research outputs report on "real" software systems. This paper is one of them. en
