Reply with quote

Hi,
We use Changeman for our source version control. For a COBOL source compile, we give the below compile options.

LANGUAGE ===> COBOL2 (Blank for list; applies to source code)
COMPILE PROCEDURE ===> CMNCOB2 (Blank for list; ? for designated procedure)
COMPILE PARMS ===> DYNAM,TEST(SYM)
LINK EDIT PARMS ===>
DB2 PRE-COMPILE ===> YES (Y/N)
OTHER OPTIONS ===> NO (Y/N to display other options)

For COMPILE PARMS, I understand what is DYNAM option. But what is TEST(SYM) doing here? Any idea what is this paramater?

Thanks,
Deepak

Probably the same thing that is defined in the Enterprise COBOL for z/OS Programming Guide, Compiler options, TEST

Thanks William. Now I could relate why the job, when failed, produces a CEEDUMP which has the information about the data each variable holds when the job failed.

test option is used when you need to compile with a debugger and need to create a debug file.

Remove this opction and check that sysdebug not appears in the compilation JCL
