hi.

To move logically forward we press F2 key in ibm debug environment.

Can someone let me know how can we move logically backward to the previos logic in the ibm debug tool.

Bill.., Thanks.

I saw that by giving PLAYBACK command we can move backward in the IBM debug tool and this is what i was looking for.

Any idea at some point of time if we need to stop moving backward then what command shall we give to come out of this mode and again start moving forward.

You definitely need to work out something before you hit the Cretaceous. Sorry I got you into this. We've got all the brains here working on this, and we'll get you back to your own time soon, I promise.

In the meantime, try pressing PF1. It might not stop you, or even slow you down, but it should give you something to read on the journey.

The PLAYBACK STOP command exits playback mode, and returns to normal debugging mode

So do I. If I had a dollar for every time I saw a blank look after suggesting the HELP key, I could have retired years ago.

I'm wondering if this is how so many TS/OPs just up and disappear. Without any knowledge of PF1, they get in the debugger and set it off backwards in time. Before they know it, internet connection is severed around about 1963 and they're stuck, because they can't ask for help.

Now, I think a couple of clever ones got together and decided to try to work out how to signal to us.

I think this is the root of the "Year 2000" problem. We really knew the century-end was coming, but these people kept knobbling code to try to signal to us so that we can go and rescue them.

Ed and Phr,,, er,, Phil will form an "away party", Dave Porcelan and I a "landing team", but we'll ignore the correct advice and be stuck in an infite loop until someone invents an android.

Something like that.

I once pressed PF1 for someone and they said "Oh, I've only ever done that by accident, so got out of it as quick as I could".
