I'm new to CICS and Intertest. I've been given some initial training on Intertest and would like to increase my knowledge of the various options that can be entered on the CNTL= command when entered at the CICS terminal. I've searched the web and the CA (Broadcom) web site, but can not seem to find any documentation on the details for the CNTL command syntax. For example, I've been shown the following command

CNTL=ON,PROG=xyzzy,UBP=((#1),F=.ANY)

Now I know that this is setting an unconditional breakpoint in the program, but would like to know what the (#1),F=.ANY signifies. The person who passed this information to me did not know. They states, its just what they use.

So I would like to find out the syntax for the CNTL= command, what these options mean and any others I can use.

Another I've seen while in the debugger, is CNTL=GO,TASK=xyzzy,?

where I've found that ? can be C or X, but I can not find any docs on what other options can be found.

TIA

Thanks, I eventually found that manual too. Just took a bunch of searches before I found it.

Gotta love the internet. Sometimes a search returns way too many hits.
