Re: IDMS / COBOL Debugging Tools

Yeah, my all-time favorite Cobol debugging tool was ready trace. That
was on a project to convert GE Macro to Cobol, of a Demand Deposit
System, that the bank ran for other banks and got paid for the services.
In the days of one compile/link a day, and production runs in the middle
of the night, desk checking was important, and a trace in the dev
environment. But, leave it in the source code, then performance went to
pot.

Re: IDMS / COBOL Debugging Tools
"I am another huge fan of the old READY TRACE.?

WIth online code, I have been at shops where the DBA's for some reason would not give us access to OLP.
In addition to more formal tools, I have occassionaly used queue or db records (for example, we had some ""temp"" db records that we used for building a BOL and in test I could add data /comments to those.? It wouldn't be my first choice, but it had been known to help when I didn't have access to tools.?
