I've never really needed to struggle through COBOL debugging in this
I choose the LIST option to get the assembler XREF for the compile.
This has always been all I've ever needed for finding a problem.

Has anyone had success finding working storage/linkage section items in
a log dump for DC-COBOLs compiled with Enterprise Cobol?

OS/VS DC-COBOLs (CB1 RELEASE 2.4, don't laugh)

I haven't had any problems debugging the OS/VS using instructions from
the Debugger manual (R13 points to TGT, etc) but the manual (R16 SP2) is
a bit vague on subsequent compiler versions (R9 'usually' points to

Re: Convert IDMS DDL to Relational DDL
"What is it about a company the size and prominence of CA that has tools that do not support their own tools? ERWIN appears not to provide IDMS support, and CA Intertest supports CICS, IMS-DC, batch and so forth - but can not be used for Cobol running in IDMS-DC! Hmmmm - make one wonder sometimes!

Take care - cheers - Gary
