Comprehensive code analysis
The isCOBOL Debugger works directly in COBOL source, so it is not necessary for developers to know Java to leverage this tool. From the isCOBOL Debugger, developers can perform activities such as trace-file writing, loading and unloading sessions, executing instructions, searching for text and setting breakpoints.
The debugger window provides three primary code views:
- The source code window enables source code viewing.
- The command window allows developers to view all executed commands and messages, as well as insert commands.
- The info window displays the execution stack, variables to monitor and the breakpoint list.
These debugger windows can be resized as desired and commands can be issued using the command-line, menu items or via toolbar buttons. There is also a toolbar that allows to execute quickly the most common tasks and to visualize the amount of actual used memory.
