Hi everybody,

many many years I used ASG / ViaSoft SmarTest for debugging COBOL programs on MVS / z/OS. There was one command I really appreciated and used a lot: The STEP OVER command.
It is very useful when you reach a PERFORM section statement but you know this section works fine and there's no need to debug this step by step. When you use this command, the perform and the complete executed section is processed as one single statement without any breaks in the section and its sub sections. Unless there are user set breakpoints, of cause. After returning from that section, the processing stops without any breakpoint after that perform and you can continue debugging.

No I'm working for a company that does not use ASG-SmartTest but CA-Xpediter (XPEDITER/TSO 16.05). And I'm regarding for a command, a function, a feature like that mentioned SmartTest STEP OVER command.

I would be very happy for any hints so that I do not have to set several breakpoints after any section that's code does not interest my.

Thank you very much for your help
