Hi,
I have been using Changeman and Xpeditor in my previous organisation.
My new organisation uses Endeavor and Tracemaster. But no one in my team has used Tracemaster here.
So i thought of doing some research and help the team in setting up tracemaster which would help the entire team in deugging the programs.
I got in touch with system admin and they provided the manual for Tracemaster
I went through the tracemaster manual and initial setup has been done.I now have a question regarding compiling the program for tracemaster.
The manual just ask us to compile the program for tracemaster using whatever compiler tool present in the organisation.
I tried looking for tracemaster compiler option in Endeavor(similar to xpeditor compiler option in changeman), i was not able to find any compiler option.

Could any one help me in confirming the following.

1) Compiling the program for Tracemaster, Does Endeavor support it? or do i have to compile the program using the tracemaster compiler utility outside Endeavor?

Have you talked to your Endeavor site support? If not, that is the FIRST place you should contact. Endeavor compiles can be customized in various ways for various products, and hence your site support group should be your contact. They may already have a compile process for Tracemaster; if not they may want to set one up and if they do you'll want to follow the site standard.

Thankyou Robert.

I was able to reach out to Endeavor site support. Awaiting their response.
I wasnt sure if reaching out to Endeavor support was the right approach.
Now i am confident that i am moving in the right direction.
Its exciting to learn new tools! I will keep this thread posted with the updates from my support team.

Thankyou again

Hi All,
My environment support helped me in setting up a new compiler option for tracemaster debugging in our environment.

Now i am successfully able to debug the code using tracemaster.

Few pointer i had learnt, i would like to share. Please ignore if you are already aware.

1) The debugging option is added during compiling the program and not link-editiing.

2)Whenever you compile a program with tracemaster option, there would be a member generated in the system defined symbols library in the name of the program.So , to make sure that the compiler has actually compiled for tracemaster, you can check the system defined symbol library(name will be shared by env. support) for a new added member corresponding to your program.
