CONTENT AND OBJECTIVES:
Debug Tool Utilities
Examine the set of ISPF panels that provide access to the tools for managing debugging sessions.
Given a program by the instructor, perform the following actions: 1- Step through a program. 2- Run the program to a specific line. 3- Set, skip, and clear a breakpoint. 4- Display the value of a variable. 5- Change the value of a variable. 6- Record and replay statements.
Preparing a Program for Debugging
Set the compiler and assembler options and suboptions; the program will be provided by the instructor.
In order to interact with Debug Tool, it will be necessary to determine the debugging mode: batch, full-screen, full-screen mode through a VTAM terminal, or remote debug mode.
Examine the method or methods that can be used to start Debug Tool.
Learn how to debug older COBOL programs.
Given a program by the instructor, prepare it for testing with the Debug Tool.
Starting Debug Tool
Write the TEST run-time option string.
Create a USE file; the USE files started from within a primary commands file take on the attributes of the primary commands file and can be run until complete.
Manage setup files; the setup files store the information on file allocation statements, run-time options, program parameters and the program names.
Debug COBOL programs.
Halt when certain routines are called in COBOL.
Halt on a COBOL line only if a condition is true.
Debug COBOL when only a few parts are compiled with TEST.
Capture COBOL I/O to the system console.
Display raw storage in COBOL.
Get a COBOL routine traceback.
Find unexpected storage overwrite errors in COBOL.
Debug Tool Processing
Display files allocation status for current program.
Test a program with debugging information in the load module calling a program without debugging information.
