Following commands can be useful for expeditor:
line command B => for putting breakpoint
Keep <var name> => for monitoring variable values
F12 => for execution till the next breakpoint is encountered.
mon or monitor => to monitor the flow of execution (it is used if you want to go in reverse flow after some time)
Rev or Reverse => after typing this command and then pressing F9 will take the flow in reverse flow (but for this monitor is must otherwise it will not remember the reverse flow)
If you want to again go in forward direction, again type rev commmand.
To delete monitor command is "delete mon"
There is one more When command => It is used to keep breakpoint till a variable reaches a value. For example you want the program to execute till "A" = xyz. then command will be when A = 'xyz' and press enter. After this press F12. The execution will stop as soon as A gets value as 'xyz'. After this do not forget to give "delete when" command.
If one program calls second then you can view source for the second program from first by SO command. Syntax is SO <PGMNAME>
There are lot of more commands you can use. But I thing these are the mainly used commands and sufficient for debugging programs through expeditor.

Let us take one example.

Suppose program A is as follows:

Code:
IDENTIFICATION DIVISIOON.
PROGRAM-ID. A
----
---
PROCEDURE DIVISION.
---
---
MOVE X to Y.
MOVE 'B' TO WW-000-PGM
CALL WW-000-PGM USING ----,---
EVALUATE WH-000-RTRN-CDE
WHEN WS-000-SUCCESS
---
GO BACK.
Now if you are expediting Program A and you need to see the flow of program B even. Then once u reach the CALL statement in expeditor type SOURCE B in the command prompt. Then Keep a break point at the procedure division of B and continue your expediting.

But if you need to comeback to A again, then before going to B keep a break point after the call statement ..and then say source B.

A and B should be available in the loadlib.

HTH,

Hi Ajayvamsi!

DDIO is a VSAM file which contains the Source listing information, along with timestamp information.

Yup. We have to compile in XP. We use ENDEVOR as the version control tool in our shop and we use the processor group accordingly to compile the program with expeditor option. If the program is not compiled in expeditor option and if you try to expedite that, u will get error message "NO SOURCE LISTING INFORMATION FOUND FOR MODULE".

HTH,

The cobol ver 3 does not give a DDIO load version it needs to be complied seperately and this load will be given in the DDIO library setup in the Xpeditor

hai anu,

Source main-pgm in the command prompt of sub program?

Thanks and Regards.
Badal

Am not sure if u still have this doubt.

Anyways FYI..

If we need to come back to main program from subprogram, we have to keep a break point in the main program after the call statement. We have to keep this break point before coming to sub program itself.

Hmm..Let me take an example


Let us say PGM A calls PGM B.

Code:

00001     IDENTIFICATION DIVISIOON.
00002     PROGRAM-ID. A
----
---
00100     PROCEDURE DIVISION.
---
---
00450     MOVE X to Y.
00451     MOVE 'B' TO WW-000-PGM
00452     CALL WW-000-PGM USING ----,---
00453 B   EVALUATE WH-000-RTRN-CDE
00454     WHEN WS-000-SUCCESS
---
09919     GO BACK.


After the call statement we need to keep the break point as above. And then we can say source B at the command prompt. Now from B if we need to come back to A then press F12 or even can finish B and by F9 also we can come back to A (provided we kept a break point in A)

HTH
