Hi,

I am coding COBOL program in NT environment (not in a mainframe).... We use Fujitsu compiler to compile it... But we don't have a proper debugger to debug programs... Could anybody suggest a COBOL debugger (that exists) which can be used to run in NT environment?

With OpenCobol you can use the gnu gdb debugger.

Hello,

You could add some diagnostic code to the program and remove/comment it later.

I have used DISPLAY on every compiler i've ever used. . .

Might not be elegant, but always works. . .

As Dick mentioned, DISPLAY existed long before other debugging techniques and is still used when appropriate. In addition, the WITH DEBUGGING MODE clause of the SOURCE-COMPUTER paragraph makes it very easy to enable/disable your DISPLAY statements.
