I understand the difference between;
- SYSUDUMP - user area dump
- SYSMDUMP - machine readable dump output
- SYSABEND - user area and more storage areas

And we use CEEDUMP because we've recently converted to COBOL LE

But what should I consider to determine when I need to have;
- SYSABOUT
- SYSDBOUT

are any of the above moot since we have CEEDUMP?

My specific job/step right now is a SYNCSORT sort exit COBOL LE program

Hi,

These are dump/debugging printouts produced by COBOL up thru COBOL II (circa 1992). Compilers in the dozen years since then no longer produce these output files. They are replaced by others, like CEEDUMP, etc.

As I recall, SYSDBOUT was the printout from the COBOL DeBugging aids, while SYSABOUT was the ABend printout.

Regards,
Mike.
