Hi,

Are there any REXX commands which would help in finding out the memory occupied by a COBOL working storage variable ?

The requirement is to develop a REXX tool which will create a report listing all the variables used in a COBOL program along with the memory occupied by those variables.

Any pointers will be highly appreciated.

Thanks and Regards,
Edward.

unless You want to reimplement Yourself in REXX all the quirks of compiling a cobol fragment

the fastest and reasonable way is to analyse the listings of the compilations

but if You google or search the forum You might find some <partial> implementations

Print the listing. Burst all the pages. Staple together those mapping the data division. Use correcting-fluid to blank out the Compile information on the top line of each page and replace with "Dun by Rexx".
