Re: Debugging DC-COBOL (Enterprise COBOL)

Alex -

I've never really needed to struggle through COBOL debugging in this
manner.
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.

Thanks.

Subject: Debugging DC-COBOL (Enterprise COBOL)


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

We have a mix of LE DC-COBOLs (IBM ENTERPRISE COBOL FOR Z/OS 3.3.0) and
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
TGT).

"Admittedly, not a process that's followed here (or anywhere else I would
imagine) with any regularity.
We do have a couple of doozy DC-COBOLs and although yesterday's abend
involved a relatively simple one (and I do have the LIST, XREF
available), the nature of the failure is still quite elusive.

I've just found the description in the debugger manual for OS/VS is
quite good; it's frustrating that there is no equivalent for LE COBOL.
