Back in the days before xpedtor/intertest were available
(internet was not available either)
and all I had was CEDF,

i would create a member in my library called BREAK.
BREAK consisted of one line:
Code:
EXEC CICS ASKTIME END-CICS


Then I would copy the member into my CICS pgm
everywhere I wanted a BREAKPOINT in CEDF.

with the new AK and BK line commands
this would be a one shot copy operation.

with the XCLUDE command,
you can clean-up your program with
X ALL ASKTIME
DEL ALL X

There is no need to use DISPLAY in a CICS program.
It is an unnecessary over-use of CICS resources,
plus it is an after-the-fact audit.

Using the 'break point' facility of CEDF,
you are not only real time debugging,
using the CEDF facility (redundant, I know)
you can see all of memory, as it is,
not what a DISPLAY command interprets.
