Breakpoint is a point in your program were you want the debugger to stop.

In Xpediter, you set a breakpoint by putting A (after) or B (before) next to the desired line. To see all breakpoints in your program, use the command SHOW BEFORES or SHOW AFTERS.

I would rather say Break point is a point in your proram where you want XPEDITOR to stop/start debugging of the program.

Let's say this is what ur program looks like...
Code:
PROCEDURE DIVISION.
   A100-INITIALIZE.
   B100-PROCESS.
   C100-TERMINATE.

Now you have started XPED and you want XPED to go directly to Para B100-PROCESS rather than being executed line by line. You'll put a "B" next to the B100-PROCESS and press F12 to switch over. Now XPED is ready to start with B100-PROCESS directly line by line.

@ofer71... Pls correct me, if I m wrong.

PF12 is usually for GO (until next breakpoint or WHEN).

Hi !

I would go along with ofer71. You specify Breakpoint at that point in Coding, where you want to Trace your Coding, perhaps line by line.
With a for after or b for before ( before executing the coding in that line)

Then PF12 issues a GO, Xped will start your programm in background and will stop at the breakpoint to let you enter the commands you need.
Perhaps a Keep comand for displaying the content of a field or something like this. PF6 will step to the next line,- SourceCodeInstructuion-, PF12 (GO) will step to next Breakpoint, if there is any,or to EndOfProgram.

Type Help under Xped to have a look at all the commands.

Regards; Umeysan
